Many of the things I did right or wrong on the FiveWood project helped to make this one move even quicker. Some of the things that I borrowed from the FiveWood project include:
Reset and CD eject buttons made from scratch. Mind you there’s still electronic momentary switches in there: I’m not claiming I can make wood transmit electricity!
The optical drive door
Fitting of the optical/hard drives and the power supply was done the same way as in FiveWood.
As a result, this will definitely take the record as my fastest mod ever. I can guarantee that they'll never be another one from me this quick, as I don't expect to make another tiny mod yet.
