Best Build

I have an awesome wife!

I’m taking forever on this but it’s just a fun ongoing project. The right half of the chassis has been cut out and replaced with a Staind oak wood. The base is stained glass and all the pipe is anodized stainless steel. The goal was to make a display case for my models and to try my hand at customer case modding. People who come over actually have no idea it's even a computer it's rather commical.
