The Floating Hand April 22  A day of a lot work and even more progress for the floating hand. Although I really wanted the case to look exactly the way it is right now, I have to accept that I was a little surprised by the incredible results.  It all started with laser cutting the final layer for the case, including all the holes for screws and cables. After letting the glue dry for a couple of hours it was time to suffer! Or so I thought.  I couldn’t be more glad to be wrong; I was talking to John Kriegshauser (shop god) explaining him how I wanted to sand it and cover it with bondo or wood filler he look at me through those thick saw dust dirty glass while lifting his eyebrow.  Fifteen minutes later I had the smoothest, most rounded case I have ever imagined on achieving!  I also learned how to use the spray gun, I have to say it looks easier on TV.  So much things to remember, the mixture between thinner and paint, the air pressure, the speed… But the real pain is cleaning that up when you are done, specially if you (accidentally) drop the paint everywhere! Can’t wait for the Stainless Steel coating to get here so we can get down to some more serious business.

A day of a lot work and even more progress for the floating hand. Although I really wanted the case to look exactly the way it is right now, I have to accept that I was a little surprised by the incredible results.
