haha...i'd be soo angry at you if i won it.

how long did it take you to make that?

and i'm guessing it'd take less time to make a replica since you've already worked out the kinks of it.

you should really consider making another and selling it...if you have the time or will to make lots of money. haha

so im planning on building a case in woodshop this year..im debating on what wood to use..i want to stain it a dark red and put red LED fans and RED CC lighting in it..im thinkin the same wood as urs...doesnt ply wood have a tendancy to chip when cutting? and would i have to cap the edges because you can see the layers of ply when u cut ur side panels and such..thanks

ply does chip, but if you use a good quality ply, mines beach venered, its alot stronger, and the whole thing i cut with a router, if you dont have one, just put some masking tape over there your gonna cut and it shouldnt splinter.

for the edges, they will go alot darker as the absourb the stain so much more, this wasnt a problem for me as the top was rebated in to the side so only a tiny amount was visable, i recoment you do the same, or glue down a realllly thin veverr of the same wood tot the edge, but the thing is, if you sand down really nice and do a good job staing it, it will still look pretty good even if you just leave the edges, wats your design?
