    I liked the font number 2, but it defiinitely looks better as a cut out. Very nice.

    Awesome Idea!!! A few years ago I made a very nice wooden case for a client to give as a gift to his wife. The wood was not this thick but it was sturdy enough with the way I designed it. It even had hearts for fan holes instead of circles :D

    Anyway sweet case!!!! :respect:

    You should consider selling your work.

    Excellent quality and work!

    haha thank you :toast:

    I just dont know though unless you lived close enough we could pick it up because shipping would be outrageous :wtf:




    Also:
    Has anyone had experience with red CCFL lights? do they look red or are they pinkish?
    Trying to decide whether to get red lights or white lights that would shine through a red transparent sheet behind 'Duke' to make it stand out ...

    thoughts or ideas?:toast:

    perhaps white cathodes are very very bright so make sure if you do that the red is relatively dark

    I stand corrected. They do have simple overall lines, but you are right they are different.

    copenhagen, looks like a great project. Sorry if you said it already, but what exact kind of wood are you using? Just curious.

    I was going to say #2 on the font but what you went with looks nice—good choice and nice work.
