    Would you people let THIS guy destroy the rainforest for this piece of.........uhm... You know what, this case can only be described as contemorary art. And if you want any suggestions. Try to make the parts symetrical, and a little bit bigger. If I were you I would use the inner case/skeleton of a regular case and dress it up with wood, try fur instead of plywood. I by all means necessary, use a 21st century watertank, you don't want to be like the swedish do you.

    P.S. Beklager svenske vitsen, men sånne ting ligger naturlig i norskt blod.

    Sorry about the harshness of my post it's just that I don't want you to make the same mistakes that I did. Attention to detail is all that matters. And now I see that you're making progress when it comes to practicality. The backplate would require a lot of finesse to make it look good. What I did with mine was just to clip off some of the excess aluminum, and sprayed it to match the color of my case. I honestly believe that your mod is a genuinly good idea, I just feel that you have rushed yourself a bit. (handsawing the plates was probably not a good idea. If want a good tip, mix coarse saw dust and mix it with glue (trelim), then use it like bondo. Don't worry about using too much because it is easy to file down, that way you get a smooth surface that still feels like wood.

    BTW er det ikke en mod på overklokking som er laget av tre med plaxi strimler i fronten og toppen.

    I've allready replied to your thread on Overklokking.no so you know my opinion, but actually I've changed my mind a bit now. The case looks good except the back, and imho I would try to make the front a bit smoother too.
    But the last pic you posted looks pretty good :thumb: :dremel:

    the case might turn out great if you sand it. but you seriously have to work on your english, mate.. pay attension in class and don't just look up the words in a dictionary.

    Looking forward to see the final result!

    As for the english, the best way to learn english (or any other language) is to use it alot and read english books amd stuff like that :thumb:

    Thank you! I have begun to read books on english, and I'm allready feeling that my english is going better.

    Here comes a backplate-update. I have now filled the holes with a mixture of treedust and glue:

    As you see in the picture the top sits a little bit skew in propotion to the rest of the case. So I have planned to file left a little bit: [​IMG]

    Keep it up mate :D Nice to see a modder such as yourself taking our input into perspective ;) Do you have any plans to put on any varnish type stuff once you've prepared the surface like ZapWizard has in his new project? :baby:
