Any new on updates or are you really busy atm I hate waiting...
Thanks, and not long now.
Thanks, some things have turned out exactly as imagined others not, but
overall I'm happy with how it all came together. I have to tell you though,
I finished making all the parts four days ago and upon assembly I got a bit
of a shock . I didn't like what I was looking at. But this was because
I've been looking at the case in a partially open state for months, so to see
it all closed up was wierd. Now, I like it.
Thanks, I got the anodising done at a place in Blackburn and it cost about
a hundred dollars for two lots. Still one lot to go. I did look into doing the
anodising myself but I have nowhere to store the acid and having a very
curious young daughter around made me shelve this idea.
I won't update now till it's done. All the parts are made, just tweaking to do
and the long process of finishing the wood and polishing some alu. And then
of course taking the photo's. I'm not good at photography so I'm dreading
Eagerly awaiting the final shots of the 8th wonder of the world..............well for a geek anyway
I think people should just sponsor you to take it to lots of major lans so we can all see in person
ooohhh cant wait!!! lolz
your pictures are pretty decent oldnewby, and the case is stunning...
My god, that is just awesome.
Thanks a lot guys.
First of all, although I'm very happy with the photos, I can't explain the colour variation
straight off the camera, but the wood is gorgeous and the photos do it justice.
Thanks to all who followed this project, and especially thanks to those who have posted
and given thier opinions and idea's, I have used quite a few ideas proposed by members.
Thank you. :clap::clap::clap:
The best thing about building CX1 has been the wealth of experience I've picked up along
the way. Many things I undertook for this project were for the first time and many mistakes
were made, but I now have a huge arsenal of knowledge that I can take to the next project
and hopefully make it easier, quicker and better.
See you next time.
