    Thanks ringo, much appreciate your words.

    Another side is still unfinished and i will add some little decorations around the case.

    Here's the table before watersanding, simple as hell. I thought i keep it and save the laser cutting for the next project, allthought i need loads of parts for that.

    I'm not 100% satisfied for this side:

    [​IMG]

    First i liked the idea of showing components, but now i think that mb and gfx are too visible, needs to do something for them. Also door needs some stripes or curves to get it fit for the "theme".

    I'm still trying to get this case done within 2 weeks. (starting now)

    sorry my bad english.

    I have to agree. The other side is plain awesome, but the window side is just plain. Go wild and show off your mad metal skills! :dremel:

    Good luck with the two weeks. I still have an exam on Monday, but after that I'll also start a mad dash. I look forward to seeing this thing live.

    Very impressive work!
    I'd agree that this side could use a little embellishment, considering the awesomeness of all the other panels. What about continuing the web theme onto this side as well? It would go well with the cool horse. I'm sure you could make a fantastic mobo cover / gfx cover, but the time involved might interfere with your other plans.
    I think the table suits the case very well!
    Where do you want to have the switches?


    +rep n stars.

    Thanks ModMinded, Javerh and MIGUI.

    I'm goin to make a little case for the dvd-player, usb hub and switches to be placed to the desk. I'm going to sleeve cables together, so there's only one little bigger cable between case and "deskbox".

    I'm going to use this kind of connectors for the switches.

    One big cable harness is a good idea. How are you planning to separate the cables so that it looks nice?

    I haven't decided yet, needs to make some testing first.

    Quick question. Because i'm colorblind i need some help to be sure. :(

    Are these 330 Ohm resistors?

    No and maybe, i also like polished surfaces. But that's the reason why i may talk about blue parts when showing green ones. :)

    Green and blue looks same to me, so i can't actually say how those colours fit together or trying to get some colours to "fit" together gives me really different impression than most of people.

    ^ :)

    Did something today:

    [​IMG]

    Small accurate cuts in the doors with angle grinder.

    [​IMG]

    Now power cover is same level with the doors.

    Its allways good to protect polished surfaces when you're making cuts. I used masking tape and my left hand for that. :)

    [​IMG]

    I also remembered that i did this kind of part earlier:

    [​IMG]

    But i have lost it somehow. :( What do you think, should i make a now one to be placed under "windrider" (horse)?

    A new part of that type could be nice. You should try to shape it so it highlights the horse.
