Time to build one of these!


#4

GODDAMN that shit is SERIOUS!


#5

That is pretty damn sweet! Could just imagine friends coming over to battle it out lol.


#6

This looks absolutely Amazing. Grats to the maker.


#7

I couldn’t even tell the difference at first between this and a real Vewlix cabinet. It really does look that good and I’m surprised how flawless it looks.


#8

Cool!

Hey, thanks for posting this in here for me, erhem, horsedick. I may be a Unity member, but I’m also an SRKer. :wink:

Feel free to ask any questions in here and I’ll try and help.

Thanks again,
Donovan

huge balls (& horsedick? - I’m sensing a pattern),

I cut out 2 straight pieces with 2 rounded corners (.75" thick) for the front and the back. Then I cut two boards that ran the length of the straight part that were 2.25" wide. Then I cut out 6 rounded corners (3 for each side, .75 x 3 = 2.25"). Once I screwed and glued all that together, I covered all the imperfections with drywall joint compound, then sanded to make it look like 1 piece.

Here’s some Flickr photos to help:

It was by far the most PITA part, and I’m still not 100% happy with it.

Great job on cabinet. With all that MDF being used, how much does it weigh?
