Thanks! Haha, I hope there will be. Maybe I'll get some for the occasion
A quick view of the hardware that will go inside of the cube. Don't mind the totally useless cardboard cutout at the top, it will be made of 3mm clear perspex and the design will be slightly altered - more material to give a stronger piece. Also, you can see a slot that will fit over the network card to hold it in place - it will be bent and fitted square over the card.
My current thinking is that the hard drives will be secured by angled aluminium on both sides of the 5mm perspex sheet. I think I will ultimately only use one 1TB SATA drive, but it helps to plan for expansion and for the time being I'll use the two 320GB IDE drives.
