    Hi every one!
    Whel this is my first ever project that i ever placed online. Hope you will like it :D

    Ok the picture below is a ruff 3d scratch of it. So you know the ruff idea how its gonna look...... the basic lines i mean.
    [​IMG]

    Hire is not put in the window front lightings switches and so on in jet. Ok it ain't so good like most can make 3d but it is something :clap:
    And to make it interesting i am making this one out of something i never yous 'd ore build with be four. Namely MDF. Its cheap so i can make a few mistakes and it wont cost me a lot. I work a few times with steel aluminum and a few times with glass. But never with wood :rolleyes: So this is kinda new to me :p

    Ok hire is the first real built pic.
    [​IMG]
    This is the under side and the side panels from the lower part.
    I was end planing to make a work log. so a few pic's are missing of the work i did :wallbash:

    [​IMG]

    Well thats four to day. I am very tired and hope tomorrow i can do something more than this :clap:
    And i got some good news my mom is aloud to go to an revalidation center to morrow. She still may not walk. But she is aloud to try a few movements without resting on her right lag.
    Wood be grant to she her back home over 2.5 to 3 months. And if she is lucky. the metal construction on her arm and pins will go off. Over 8 to 10 weeks. And hopefully she may go home four revalidation at home :D She is already 6 weeks in hospital. And it ain't no fun :grr:

    Looking good!
    I like the idea to build out the bottom, looks cool and there is more space to put things in.
    Keep up the good work, and I hope for your mom to get healthy again!

    The 2 3x120mm black ice exstreem rad's even with low noise fans makes a lot of air movement. So way wast it :p
    The air will be guided from under on to the mobo. and from the sides. So the mobo hdd and every other heat making device. Will be cooled :D

    Thanx. She shall recover. Only it will take a lot of time.

    [​IMG]

    On the left is the Aluminum solder. I had that stuff longer. Day say its 5x stronger then aluminum it self. So good inuf to fix my first blunder with. And you can melt it at lo temps. Ore els i have to make a few brackets :p

    The switches on top are four the lightings. I am not going to yous them all. I was planing using only 4 and 2 extra in case of defects. But four only 1 euro more i got 10 in stead :p four future yous.
    The blue pressure button is four power. And the red one Four reset and HDD :D
    And later the evening after i see my mom. Ill go and build so far i can go to day.
