lol Well, that will do it. I've had that happen before.

That's some gorgeous work, Rekarp. If I'm ever able to afford a DS, I may have to commission you for one of those.

This project looks fantastic, keep it up

Ever thought of selling cases?
You can use more exotic woods for a more robust appearance

honestly anything else I'll say is just gonna be terrible so I'll end it here

Trying to figure out how to manufacture a stronger yet thinner case. My normal case construction techniques only go so far and thin. Been looking at making a milling table out of a router and a 3 Axis table.

Perhaps wood with a thin sheet of aluminum on the inner side to reinforce it?

Also have been thinking of epoxy backing the wood.

That would work, too. Another idea that would be pretty thin, but moldable into corners, would be some thin fiberglass.

you could use that shalak that creates a very strong clear coat, just expands as it dries, have to compensate for that

so sad that wood doesn't vac-form

I dont think shellac would be that much stronger than the lacqer he already was using. How much room you got for epoxy? It needs to be kinda thik to be strong. Otherwise its just brittel. Could you use some sheet steel or somthing with a bit of somthing else to insilate it?
copulate all you goddamn smartasses.

It does to an extent. I actually looked into it when I was testing bent wood. You can't get anything crazy tho.
