    Small update.

    I wanted to show the effect of darker color compared to the original wood.

    thats the effect I could see in the wood! Looks good! should go satin or matt over gloss to add to the old look!

    After the change of color. Only few little things to do. Of course it isn't finally polished.

    As suggested by somone a USB hub will be an external device. So I needed to add a "leg" and copper braid on the cable.

    Today I've made some modifications to the dvd drive

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    As you can see when you press the curved "wire" it's opening cd bay.

    [​IMG]

    In the second bay I will probably put the disk. For tomorrow I have time for reflection, whether it is better to put there, drive or DVD recorder:)

    Insane. Utterly insane. Massively cool as well, mind... But just insane. Prev poster is right, it looks like it belongs on an old ship, next to the wheel!
