    Lol I got thumbscrewfrom a vendor in a sample pack. I have only one :p

    :toast:

    Well maybe if I had some Dade County Pine I'd make one all one species:D

    The guy that get's this one has all external LC cooling and wants to figure out his own cooling arrangements. It would be a simple thing to mount a fan to some brackets or standoffs to cool the drives. The mobo and RAM will likely get their own coolers.

    It took at least that long for me...it's ridiculous.

    Thanks

    The cornerposts are Purpleheart. The rails are Leopardwood (also called Lacewood, Silkwood). The grid work that supports the gear is Mahogany. The little cleats that support the grid and the removable panel are Wenge. The wood is raw so it in no way looks like it will under shellac. The Purpleheart will become a burgundy, the Leopardwood will become a deep honey, amber and the flakes and rays will pop out like Tiger's Eye, the Wenge will become a much richer and deep brown and the Mahogany will take on an orange tone.

    The HW is all junker gear Ikeep for layouts and fitment.

    Exactly. The guy I decided to make this for will cherish it like a fine antique :D
     
    Sasqui, Darknova and Chicken Patty say thanks.

    That is mighty cool. Who needs Aluminum cases?

    I can't believe no one has asked yet. What does something like that run?

    I did this one out of love for the craft. I dunno if I want to repeat it. I've got maybe 100 hours in it...and the wood aint cheap...

    Wow..that's a lotta crafting time.. I didn't realize...Not to be asking for a repeat performance...but do you mind letting us know about how much this particular project is costing your lucky customer?
