B E A U tiful!!!
i love the wood cases.
i have made 4 wood cases, just finished one-see build log in sig.
the hardest part for me, is trying to hide the fasteners.
i noticed your Kreig jig pocket screws-they are perfect for this.
this makes me want to start another case, but i am going to rework the bamboo case first.
keep up the good work and i am looking forward to the finished product.

That is going to look absolutely sick!

I love the grain of the wood and it will look incredible with 2 columns of colored water beside it.

Thanks to everyones kind words who is following this and as to the kreg jig dimwit i never use the screws i will only use the jig itself to drill dowell holes for a few reasons

the screws over time make the joint weak and in my opinion and experience i would be tightening the screws at least 1/4 turn per year

you can also make a mistake of grabbing a screw that is slightly too long or have a piece of weak grain in the timber and it will crack the timber leaving a big nasty blemish on all your work

the screws also have a tendancy to pull the timber out of line unless tightly clamped.

dowell on the other hand will not go weak is fairly cheap won't crack the timber and in the long term is a stronger join. I have demolished cupboards/ kitchens that have used screws and ones that were made traditionally jointed and you always need less effort to destroy a cupboard if it has been screwed together .

so for me its dowells for the win.

its not the screws that hold it together, its the glue.
if you use good wood glue, you shouldn't need the screw at all.
sometimes I just use the screw for a clamp, then remove it an use a dowel to strengthen it.
most of the time, both sides are seen, so I just use a hidden dowel-not a big fan of biscut joints.

well after 25+ years of cabinet/woodworking, I have had a fair share or making mistakes, but after a while, you learn the tricks of the trade.

you know, your build is giving me some ideas, we have a lot of Live Edge timbers in the shop, so I might start digging though them and see what I can come up with.
the problem is, I cant afford to keep buying the stuff that goes inside the case-lol

every time I start a wood case, I say that I will never do it again, but a few month down the line, I see something that starts the creative juices flowing. (like your build) and off I go again-lol

keep up the great work, I will be checking in each day.
