The LCD is done:

-------------------------------------------------



There is absolutly no way to photograph how bright this LCD is, it is on par with any CRT I have ever used.

-------------------------------------------------



The envirotex took three coats. You can see the gloss from the flash reflection on the case next to the LCD.

-------------------------------------------------



The back-lit Shuttle Logo came our great.
(The LCD comes with this already)

I did laser cut the lettering, but don't underestimate how much I still use my dremel.

I had to use the dremel to level the edges of the veneer, to square it up to the LCD.
I also had to use it to remove the extra envirotex lite.
And that crap is messy: http://www.zapwizard.com/Proje.../fac...aceplate/07.jpg' ">http://www.zapwizard.com/Projects/wood/faceplate/07.jpg

The keyboard was done without the laser at all, although I forgot I was supposed to etch a Logitech logo back into the keyboard as it's a sponsored part.

The laser makes LOTS of noise. It has several large fans, and takes a large fan to vent the toxic fumes over to my neighbors deck.

I totally get where the dremel is used on your mods bro... I was saying that for that intricate and exact "font perfect" lettering... you *had* to have used the laser... and if you did use the dremel, then that much skill residing in one person was dangerous... and I was going to come down and "relieve" you of some of that dangerous power!

LOL!!!!!

HAR HAR!!!!!!


Keep that up, and you'll have some chemically *enhanced* neighbors that could be the first "bio-mods" that have ever been done!

Ok, due to popular demand, I have added a dial to the faceplate.

The dial will still be solid state, if you have used an iPod, you know what I mean.

But I need your vote....



No dial


8cm Dial


7cm Dial


/Edit a fourth option: Wood dial:

Another reason I am liking this design is that it opens up more room inside by moving the DVD and LCD. I could fit two harddrives if needed.


In order for a asymetrical faceplate the DVD has to be mounted left of the graphics card.
There is no other position it can be besides top center.
The cuts in the dial are what the PCB under the plexi will look like.
The edges and center of the plexi will be lit.

I like the 8cm dial best myself. Looks more like old radios that had hude dials.

I like the dial (can't really tell the 1cm difference between the two) but look at your post, you linked us a picture to perscription medicine, or at least that is what I see.

7cm dial looks best imo, but either one would look good I think.

I'm leaning on the 8cm, due to the fact that all of the buttons are rounded and the screen up top is oval... if you look at the top of the oval, it top alligns with the top of the dial.

Looking at the bottom buttons, they bottom align with the bottom of the dial.

(or else they are very close)

I'd drop the 8cm in there for subtle symetry purposes.

7cm wood dial is my final choice.

I have quite a bit of wood work done this weekend:

Zap,
which app. do you use to build the 3D models of your projects?

Basically if you are getting a LCD, get one with a good contrast and brightness ration-->BVchurch @ Jan 30 2005, 12:53 PM

Amazing stuff in there. I too have a few mods lined up using the shuttle barebone (ofcourse inspired by you), I hope you wouldnt ask for a consultation fee .

Redwood 1.0 as shown in this thread took three weeks.

Redwood 3.0 is taking much longer.
