Level Twelve

and another I just finished. I call it Usonian. It was inspired by the designs of Frank Lloyd Wright.

Very nice!

Any problems with resonance with the glass?

Is the mini-ITX case a wood veneer on metal? Or rather, how much metal is hiding in there? Where did you get the back piece? (Edit: oh, I just clicked your link and saw the rest of the photos. Very cool! I have an M350, maybe I will try something similar with a custom housing. Finishing my first wooden case, definitely nowhere near your skill!)

Also: What kind of workshop do you have? Do you cut/plane/join your own boards? Very nice wood!

Thanks.

It isn't glass. It is extruded acrylic. I'm not sure what you mean by resonance but nothing is resonating. :D Both computers have an underlying stock steel chassis, one Lenovo and the other Cooler Master. I don't have a workshop. I mainly work al fresco. 8)

The first is beautiful. Should be sold online! I'm not so sure I love the second one as much but the craftsmanship is beautiful on both. Really great unique builds.

Thanks! Neither is what I would consider my best work. They were both built specifically for contests and had short build times. They were both a lot of fun to build which is my only requirement.

Frank Lloyd Wright was influenced by Japanese architecture. He later designed the Tokyo Imperial Hotel back in 1915. Usonian is a very narrowly-focused themed case mod intended for hard-core FLW fans. It is currently competing in the 2011 Cooler Master Case Mod Competition.

Thank you! Here is a photo taken at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show(CES) in Las Vegas showing both "Levels" next to each other.

Level Eleven and Level Twelve

As a side note...Usonian just came in third-place in its category in the 2011 Cooler Master Case Mod Competition. Pretty good placing considering all the awesome stuff that was entered.
