    It really stands out when the inner part is all black.

    Thanks for the cool comments, IRL the light is darker than on the pics, I'll try to take better pics next time. It's hard to have the right colors in pics.

    Ok, to be completly honnest, the spiral doesn't come from tourmanted mind, and doesn't come from the logo of an old game console but.... from a very old T-shirt I have for years.


    We start with the side door, It's really intresting to think that any rectangle 27cm x 32cm x max 5mm can be use as a door. I'll check my local plexi dealer to see what they have...
    I've decided to cover the door with the same agenda cover, this one is without the "orange peel skin".

    For the top cut on a black shinny plexi and cut on the box for the USB.

    This peace of plexi will be inserted between the 2 USB and will be enlightened by a LED.





    For the power system I've found this part in my mess.

    For the top, an old crocodile skin will be used.

    The croco's skin is glued to the back covers.

    I really like what you have done here, the mixture of materials is very cool. I'm not 100% sold on the green plaque on the front but it is growing on me, personally I think you should have used red or black plexi instead of the green but that is just personal opinion.

    Your work is always fun to watch. You start out simple, then add until the finished product is completely different from what anyone expected.:D
    I also like how your 'junk' is often premium quality materials.:hehe:

    Bump. Good luck in the MOTM! Liking the overall design very much, but I must admit I liked the plain version (before some of the additional bits) more.. Got my vote nonetheless :)
