Scrap's Custom Case Build
« on: March 11, 2015, 11:01:38 AM »
So I know I just kinda disappeared for like a year, but here's one of the projects I was working on during the time.
This is the first case build I've ever done so it might be a bit shitty in comparison to others. Took about a week to make.

*Note* These pictures were taken with a shit phone camera so please excuse the quality.

Looks pretty awesome. Looks like oak veneered plywood? Some of the glues used to make plywood aren't made to withstand frequent humidity and temperature change so the veneer might peel over time if you're running that a lot. Idk your extent of woodworking knowledge but if you see that happening I could recommend something you could fix it with if you don't know what to use yourself.
Nice job.
