    Slow or not, I'm sure it will turn out great man!

    Those feet are cool, forgot to mention that before, very nice!

    Haha, since you are working in wood production I bet you get this one done sooner than you were thinking :)

    You do have a very good point, as what i did in 15 mins, would prob take about 3 hours if done diy? possibly.

    Hoping the feet arent too tall, workmate said if i made too small, you wouldnt see them and would be no point making fancy turned feet to start with.

    Haha, ya man, all that work would take me forever! Probably would take me forever even if I was in a wood shop too :)

    Feet height all depends on where you plan to set the system up at, if they end up being too tall you could always sand some off so it's better to have them too tall instead of too short.

    Right, 15mins walk to shop, allowed 15 mins to do some more on the pc.

    So, had prepped the wood for rear panel. This time however i trimmed down using the ripsaw, this allowed me a straight edge for better trimming and squaring on the circular saw.

    Couldnt take pic of wip on the ripsaw, as its to dangerous and had no one to take pic.

    Ok, now fortunately i have a 70mm tool, so i could just about fit this into a standard pillar drill, which was really handy, saves alot of setting up on different machine.

    Who needs CNC router, marked this quick and by hand, and both holes perfect alignment, guess many years of experience does show sometimes.

    Hopefully i will have some more time tomoz, to do a little more.

    However im really happy with how its coming out so far, and is looking nice using proper stock material, rather than rubbish

    Ive managed to do a little more, but not that much yet.

    Was thinking about heat also, be funny if i press on button and it went up in flames.

    Its going to be a mini itx-low power pc, 35W, so unlikely to cause any issues.
