    I am so jealous of that beautiful workshop you got there. Id like to build my own cases and stuff too but I lack the resources like most people - best i can do is mod up a case with a dremel tool.

    last time i ever had access to a workshop like that I was back in highschool or college. totally loved the place!! nice work on the table. I look forward to seeing the finished product!!

    The workmanship on those closeups of all the brackets screwed together is amazing!! I would never guess it was hand made!! Well done :)

    Show me more!! The scale engine can wait :D

    Absolutely Amazing Work! The finished product is going to be some of the best work [if not the best ;) ] on TPU so far :D

    Well if you read his posts esp the last one more closely it sounds like there may not be any for awhile.

    So I've been a bit quiet of late, I wanted to have a bit more done for this update but it might be a week or so until I can get the rest done so it seemed like a good point to stop and post some pictures :)

    Here's where we left off, I was about half way through the leg pieces, they had incomplete uprights and no end caps.

    [​IMG]

    And then on with the new stuff :)

    Finishing up the leg attachment bars

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Making space for the power switch and usbs

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Milled the slot for the DVD drive

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    These were a bit of a pain in the arse to make... but the came up nice in the end :)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Right, back to the frame finished up the small angled sections so I could mount the panels to them...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and an attached leg...

    [​IMG]

    The end caps came out well too :)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And back to the dvd drive...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    That's all for now as far as the desk goes :) The screws holding the usbs and DVD drive are just ones I found that fit, I'm waiting on the new ones that match the rest of the desk :)

    Should be getting my replacement blocks from EK this week and I think I've found the colour I want to paint the frame... the panels will be black powder coat so mat black.

    I was doing some climbing at an indoor wall a week or so ago and spotted a water bottle lying about... a red sigg bottle to be a bit more precise.

    So what do you all think about...

    [​IMG] Red?

    I stand corrected. Thought maybe you had another work contract and/or the shop was busy with your Dad.

    Yeah that red looks nice.

    I love the smell of a workshop. When i used to work in security for a bit, I had a post at this bank and they had carpenters and other shit in the basement and I always went down there for a kip when i was on my break during the nightshift when no-one was around - I love the smell of a workshop since it was in school.

    and the equipment is totally sexy as fuck.

    You were right :) this update is what I've managed to get done since the new year, the workshop is currently dominated by a Cylinder block for a steam engine :p but I should be back in there the first week of February at the latest.

    My blocks came back from EK today so I might post some shots of everything all blocked up

    Thanks for reading :)

I'll be quiet for about a week or so as I'm off climbing in Scotland. should have updates for you when I get back and get some machine time to get the mesh mounting sorted :)

    Thank you all for the awesome response to the build :D

    Sam.
