So after a full week of non-internet connected fun on a snowboard its back to business !!
Yesterday was my birthday also and as usual I always ask new tools for my workshop.


So I got this nice sawtable for my birthday. Actually its called a tile cutter and you would use it for cutting up bathroom and kitchen tiles. But because its a full flat blade instead of a tooth blade its extremely suitable for cutting up pvc and plastics as its doesnt bite into the material. Also a small watertray underneath the blade reduces the dust and cools the blade so the plastics wont melt. I have about 600 more cubes to make for the BORG so I am very happy with it !





Its always a good sign once you get to the painting part of the build. This is a quick shot after an afternoon of sanding, sprayputty and spraycans


Got a couple of days of holiday left so hope to make some real progress!

Then its the exterior that needs work.

Ok here is the first update of the small mod marathon !

I wanted to have several levels in the BORG cube fangrill panel so I cut out the right depth with a dremel
1.jpg?w=950&h=532

After glueing all the mesh down I started with the ever so important first row.
2.jpg?w=950&h=532

Wood glue is always the best when working with different types of plastic as it wont melt your work. I am glueing PVC with aluminum mesh with Polystyrene.

Then cleaning its up with a cotton tip. Its gonna be airbrushed but the wood glue dries transparantly also.

Laying out the design before I commit to it. This makes sure the design flows right.

Damn, I need to make more cubes ...
