I wish I had 1/10th of your patience man.
No freaking doubt, If I didnt have to worry about buying all the tools, I would make an acrylic case my next project just because of syrillians inspiration.

... I will do all that I can to live up to your opinion of me...


So I after some consideration and a prototype run in the pursuit of feet, I came up with this:



The image above includes one of the previous versions, and a possible relacement. In the end, I decided that the clear portion was too thin, and made the set out of 1/2" clear, and 1/2" black:




Then the profile was added on both the top-edge, and the bottom-edge:




Then a polishing (this is about 80% polished).






I am considering omitting the lighting in the feet for several reasons, but I have yet to come to a definate conclusion.


I have also been working on drilling and mounting the carbon fiber braces and the main panels. My objective is to have the case framework completed this weekend... (one can always remain optimistic ).

Incredible craftsmanship yet again Syr. Keep us guessing about the lighting, it's more fun that way

Those feet make me want to make an acrylic coffee table next summer that houses a PC.

You know I meant to post after you decided to redo them, but I was gonna see what you thought about sprinkling a little "gold flake" in between the two pieces of acrylic for an interesting look, too late now I guess, they look perty.

Can I visit you and see it when it is done?

...I will bring you cookies, or perhaps Duff now that Homer adorns your feet.


ooohhh... nice thinking about the flake... *wonders about the lamination/de-lamination*

-Probably not a problem as the flakes are so thin.

*adds Joe's idea to "modding book" (with appropriate credit to the Jarhead).

V..a..c..a..t-io..n... hmmm... what is that?

Is that where one gets a shot before travelling?

oh wait!... that's "vaccination" ... I probably need one of those too.

In truth, I am merely trying to pass time without doing anything illegal.

...lolz. j/k.

Stunning . I seriously want to see the feet lighted.

Those perfectly profiled feet want me to get a router. I am saving up for it ..My next purchase is gonna be a router

Syr did you move the router along the feet or was the router fixed on a routing table and the feet moved around ??
Cause I have tried moving the job around the router will crappy results . Or maybe it was the dremel's mistake , the bits dont have bearings (you had warned me about this).



OT : can you give me links to some routers and bits for working with acrylic .
Oh and one more thing. I used the dremel for buffing my fan holes that day.. but the dang buffing wheel that comes with the dremel is as hard as a sanding drum :swearing:
