Boards arrived in the USA today. Smartly designed packaging! Now I just need to place the mouser order...

Great! It took a whole Sunday afternoon with a huge ultra-thick cardboard box I found, a borrowed jigsaw with a soft material blade and about 5 rolls of tape. I was very thankful for the jigsaw!

One worry I had was the post might use it as a frisbee, but from what I'm hearing no problems so far. I didn't write "FRAGILE" because that apparently increases the chance of damage!

Now you have to choose the LED colours :happy:

Cases have now entered production with an estimated ship date of October 14.

In regard to Mouser orders, you may wish to wait for a clearer picture on sliders. The 10mm shaft is probably preferable, but we need to check the optimal resistance value as this product range is limited to 1k and 50k from Mouser. The 20k has a centre detent (apparently not too difficult to remove) but might sill be a bit too high.

Cases have shipped, please let me know if there are any problems (e.g. defects etc.) as soon as possible.

The case arrived in the US this morning. Absolutely brilliant. I was a little worried about the slope of the case and overall height, but this case looks perfect.

sweet.  Looks like laser cut wood sides time (make it sound better)

Is there a drawing of the case?  I need the side profile only

Very nice case, just got mine, plus the Mouser order and acrylic surface, this will be a good project to pass the winter months. :-)

...in my dreams a few weeks ago i saw a some mushrooms in the wood, suddenly i saw a 16x32 blm on a dirty wodden desk, the set arround was a dessert party place, but the blm was still playing... in this moment i saw a woman and i decided to follow her...

Glad you're enjoying the cases! I was equally impressed with the quality and maybe it's a road to go down for later MIDIbox enclosures. 

They had to do a few minor modifications during production, so I'll just get an update and provide the side dimensions for chunky wooden add-ons :).

Okay, please check the build guide thread for drawings and graphics files of the side.

Case received and beautifully done.  This looks and feels military grade.  :-)  Thank you for the project, very well done!

Looks amazing!
