So, I've finally got enough to show the progress on my case. It's been a frustrating experience, as I'm having to learn a lot about woodworking, and other things. Simple things like cutting wood to the correct size, making the wood square, cutting a bevel, etc are all things I've had to take a crash course on. Plus, I'm trying to do it with the equipment I've got on hand, so it probably would be easy for some others if you've got a bunch of tools lying around.
Here are some preliminary pictures of all my cut pieces laid out mostly in their final positions, and you can get an idea of how it will look. I still need to cut the sides down to their final size, but they're roughly the right shape. In the end, everything will be flush with beveled edges. Right now, nothing's attached together, and it's all balanced on each other like a deck of cards!
Tell me what you all think!
PS. the back board with the holes in it will be flush with the back when I've attached everything together. I put it this way in the pictures because that rear-most horizontal board is balancing on it! The holes cut in the back board are for the fan (round hole), and the power plug and switches and ports (rectangular hole which I will cover with an aluminum plate which I'll mount the things on).
I also plan on putting an acrylic border around the keyboard, which I think will frame it nicely.
