Cherry Wood Case by Tale GunnerProject Log: Here
Cherry Wood Case first appeared on our forums over three years ago and hasn't yet seen it's way into MOTM. It's here now though and to kick off the proceedings this month, we tap in to forum user Tale Gunner's 35 years worth of experience (actually now 38 years sees as he said this at the start of the project log in 2007) in woodwork.
It's one of three scratch builds to be made primarily of wood this month and despite two one-year gaps in his project log and the fact we haven't seen any updates for a few months, we thought we'd give Tale Gunner a bit of a lift with a MOTM nomination.
Work started with some CAD drawings and the promise of a 234W TEC cooler too. Sections of wood were soon lined up next to the circular saw and the first parts of the case came off the production line shortly after. The first collection made up the bottom section of the case which was to house the cooling hardware.
Here we can see some of that gear mounted to a wooden base with what looks like an XSPC passive reservoir - haven't seen one of those for while. The case quickly took shape and we can see the bottom section now complimented by a home for the core components.
Some additional shots show how this came in to being with a very neat job done on installing the metal housings for the drive cages and motherboard tray and expansion ports.
Finally in the most recent images uploaded to his project log, Tale Gunner shows us a bit more of the cooling area of the case.
We wish him all the best in getting the project finished and if you'd like to vote for Cherry Wood Case head over to our forums
