Ninth Update:

 

 

I cut two aluminum "L" shaped profiles, and drilled them:

Then I fixed them on the front part of the stucture:

These profiles will be used for the fixation of the CoolerMaster Seidon 240M radiator.

I wait for the radiator before drilling its fixations holes because I have a doubt on its dimensions.

 

I started the covers for the front faces. They will hide the DVD/Blu-Ray reader and the front panel.

 

For this I used a cutout that I spared:

As this cutout comes from the same plank and position in this plank as the side, the veining of wood are similar:

And my goal will be to keep this veining continuity

 

I cut this piece with a hacksaw (which has smaller teeth than a handsaw):

Then I did the finishing with a belt sander and sand paper. The result is quit what I expected:

The only thing left for this cover is to do the hole for the eject button.

 

Other side, same process.

I used a cutout for the front panel cover:

Roughly hewn with hacksaw, belt sander and sandpaper:

Prior to the holes in the cover, I had to finish the fixation of the front panel.

For this fixation, I used a small sheet of aluminum:

That I cut and fold:

I used the existing fixation holes to screw the front panel on its support.

For the fixation of the front panel support on the wood, I cut a cover in aluminum:

Two screws tighten this cover on the wood, two other screws tighten the front panel on this cover:

Last piece of the front, I cut in a small block of aluminum:

To do:

The power on Button:

Now that the front panel is completed and fixed, I started to do the holes in its cover:

Not yet finished, only the audio and USB ports for now:

Stay tuned
