A thousand nations of the Persian empire descend upon you. Our arrows will blot out the sun!

The cabinet is finally assembled. Well, almost.

The speaker shelf needs to be assembled, and the base piece and casters need to be attached. Other than that, you are looking at a project well along it's way to completion.

Slight accident when insuring all the pieces fit snugly in the cabinet. The angled back piece fell with a tremendous crash, damaging the edges. Some wood filler and enamel paint touched it up nicely.

This week I'll be concentrating on the control panel mock up. By next weekend I should be good for the remaining cabinet pieces to be attached, and to start construction on the control panel.

The blotching at the back is the enamel paint seeping through the crack at the back. You can see the wood frame on the inside that provides more stability and will ultimately support the monitor.

The pieces sitting on the bottom are the corner protectors. MDF has a bad habit of folding easily. The T-molding needs to be installed first though.

Full size shot.

Side panel shot, nothing new here.

Lower back with the fan installed. The edging will be covered by T-molding.

Top back fan. It will look much better with the 254mm fan grill installed.

This is the lower fan, again will look much better with the 254mm grill installed.
