Completed the upper case's bottom.




All holes are 140mm and the covers allow tubing to pass to/from the lower case.

I made another router template (the last one for this project!) and cut-out the holes in the bottom case's side panels for the radiator intakes.

I've been working on the case doors, which has been a time consuming task consisting of cutting the 6.2mm-thick oak veneer plywood down to a rough size and then thickening them by gluing strips of 1/2-inch thick birch veneer plywood.







The panels are trimmed to their final size (less 1.5-inches) and then 3/4-inch square solid oak strips are glued to the edges of the panels to hide the plywood veneers.

Any unevenness of the plywood trim was quickly dealt with on the jointer.






The doors also function as huge airducts so blocks were glued around the perimeter of the door to offset the door away from the frame of the case.




The doors are attached to the case via a dead-simple "post and hook" mechanism. The post consists of a #8 socket cap screw, 1/4x1/4-inch aluminum spacer fastened to the case via a threaded insert.



The hook is a slitted piece of .125-inch aluminum flat bar attached to the blocks on the door via more threaded inserts.
