that's the spirit.
Yes, I have experienced that the wood easily break. And thanks for the compliments. hehe: to the list sentence. )
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.
I'm appreciate all the respons I get. Here's a little backplate update. I will fill the "holes"
Good man... thank you for listening, we all make mistakes, but it is those who correct their mistakes that make good mods
im glad to see you took my advice
well done, looks 10000x better now imo
keep moddin' (ohh isnt it just nice to please someone )
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
Poggie: Eg tror dette er samme fyren, illvit.
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.
I forgot to mention sanding in my post.. Do that too.
As for the english, we're the same age boy... Pay attension in class as Acid Burn says, you're going to need english later on anyway...
but dont sand too much or you'll have nonthing left
Yes, I am going to sand the case to!!
I have had good experience with the mixure Poggy is tipsing about, and that is what I have planned to do
I know I have to work with the english. Even if I pay attension in class, it isn''t enough. Somebody who haves any tips about what I can do? Is it anyone who could be my personally teacher?
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
or take a two year trip to england
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:
Looks better now, no doubt about that
Thank you, Sverdfisk
much better, will be un noticeable when you paint i imagine.
Keep it up mate 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?
