Well the glass has arrived in super quick time! (*they quoted 5-7days on their website, I only ordered on Thursday - *they being www.bramptonframing.com) - credit where it's due!

No cutting or anything done today but here's some shots of the new glass; I think you can see it coming together now:


* WP_20150803_005 (Custom).jpg (66.29 KB. 640x480 - viewed 304 times.)

The 0.07mm is from the plastic the company wrapped the glass in, so 2.5mm it is.


* WP_20150803_003 (Custom).jpg (65.9 KB. 640x480 - viewed 327 times.)

Side profile so you can see how it compares to the edge of the case; the edge of the case is 8mm as shown but this will soon be trimmed down by 2mm for the glass to be sunken in.

It fits perfectly and the thickness is bang on!! Kudos to the company that cut it, excellent job, all edges smoothed too.

Once again I've not had much time free to really get my teeth into this so this is only a small progress report, hopefully I'll get a bit more time in a week or two and make some serious headway then, but for now:

Some additional routing was done to level off some of the less than level cuts I'd made, and to make some adjustments for the parts to fit in with more ease; The shelf at the top of the screen recess where the tft ribbon cables ducked to the underside was removed as it was causing tension on the ribbon cables once the parts were in place, removing it also gave additional space for a heatsink plate to be added (more on this later).

the parts of the chassis that will hold the tft and small oleds was then painted black so that the inner parts cannot be seen through the glass once the case is finished.

painted bits as per above.


* WP_20150828_002 (Custom).jpg (93.28 KB. 640x480 - viewed 291 times.)

the recess was cut for the cover glass and the glass fitted to make sure it's a good fit. This image also shows a mock up test of how the veneer and white plastic strips will sit. I think it should all look good once it done.

This is more a post to show that there is still some life left in the forum, and that I'm am still working on this but the bits I'm going at the moment are slow, boring and dull - lots of filling, waiting to dry, and sanding. I would post pictures but to be honest visually there's not much to see, it's just a bit of leveling off and tidying up; once I've completed this bit I'll maybe post some images. Rest assured that it is still coming along nicely.

Yea.. i totally understand.. Every Woodie Hot Rod build I had so many hours in sanding and blocking.. wow is that ever boring..but it must be done..

 Looking awesome..its a shame that not much going on in the building of these cool drawing devices..once you use one you never go back to a mousy around..

thanks wood

Woodguy32, Can I pick your brains?

I'm thinking of finishing this build with a top coat of polyurethane gloss, since you appear to be a bit of an expert at getting a beautiful finish on your wayback devices I was wondering if you thought this was a good choice? perhaps there's something you know of that is better/more hard wearing?

An instant advantage of polyurethane that I can think of is that I already have an unopened pot! Smiley

I am a big fan of spray lacquers and automotive clear coats… well they are fool proof and easy to apply and dry really fast..plus if ya goof up, just wet sand and reapply..

Dust will be your worst problem with slow drying finishes..

 but i use spray can clear lacquer all the time on wood.... super fast, cheap and easy..

 but since you have the poly..use it.. secret is let it FLOW..

Thanks for the tip! I'm not there yet anyway so I have some time to mull it over.

Most of the filling and sanding is done now so here's a few pics of how it looks so far. There's still lots of cleaning up and painting etc to go though so it still looks a bit rough:


* WP_20150909_007 (Custom).jpg (66.87 KB. 640x480 - viewed 230 times.)

A quick check that the plastic strips sit in their recess low enough to be almost flush with the veneer. All good.


* WP_20150910_002 (Custom).jpg (81.38 KB. 640x480 - viewed 266 times.)

The strips glued in place with the glass in situe, all fits together well.


* WP_20150910_005 (Custom).jpg (88.3 KB. 640x480 - viewed 279 times.)

A sneak peek of the OLEDs under the glass.

I hope to veneer the top edges tomorrow if I get the chance; more pictures if this happens.

The veneer is in the vacuum, I'll give it a few hours and see how it's gone - pictures later.

Looks really great so far!
I probably wouldn't have the patience to build something complicated like this :3
I guess your hotkeys will be capacitive ones (because glass is on top)?

Yeah, at least that was the idea although I'm having some problems with that at the moment - nothing I can't work out though.

here's the pics of the veneer complete (but still needing cleaning up):

This looks absolutely amazing!

If you need help with touch and AVRs/Arduinos feel free to ask.
I wasted days with this stuff Tongue

Cheers guys. I'm very happy with how it's turning out so far.

With the veneer on I've changed my mind about top coating it with polyurethane, the grain is too nice so I think I'm going to use a good wax instead. I can't wait to get this thing finished now, I wasn't sure I'd ever make it this far, the encoragement really help, thanks again.

XDjackieXD: I might well need some help with coding the arduino, thanks for the offer.

Lookin Awesome..

 I go with a danish oil or tung oil for the finish on the wood veneer then wax..   foolproof  and easy.plus a nice sheen look… not a big fan of supper gloss plastic looking wood... you can let it dry and 0000 steel wool it  and coat again..  Danish oil maybe better.its thinner..
