This week I got the NUC contest case done, and applied finish! Unfortunately I can’t show it just yet, so we’ll still have to wait for that.

I also show a couple of my planes, and the other computer case I’ve been working on.

Thanks guys! I like the Siegley because it’s different. I like the aesthetic. Which might be a weird reason to buy a plane, but collecting is half the fun for me anyway lol

Your faith in marketing types…. Ha! The aluminum case seems a great choice for safely shipping it.

Whoa! Dan lives!!! Glad to know. :-)

Thanks for the update Mos.

Cool case. I’ve been wanting an NUC for something (no real need, just a gear-junkie want) and always thought that it would be cool to make a case (for my main PC), too. Maybe once I can tell my ass from my elbow in the shop and if I can’t find a ‘just right’ Mini ITX case.

As usual, another well done blog, Mos. You have some mad skills with video editing. Nice calendar on the wall behind you too (just like mine).

Thanks Bill! I’ve made a number of wooden computer cases, mostly in the ITX realm. I should have all of them posted in here, otherwise themodsquito.com has all my computer case building and modding stuff in it as well. It’s a lot of fun, getting to combine hobbies :-)

Thanks Don. I’ve been getting better at editing them too, it doesn’t take quite as long as it used to lol It is indeed a nice calendar as well, but I might be a little biased lol
