First of all I hope od1 is not to disappointed with how far I drifted from his original concept, his renderings were outstanding and I could have just taken his plans and copied them down to every last detail and it would have made an outstanding case mod. But, if I had to build this I had to make it my own.
Od1 suggested using a fake tree and putting the computer in the pot of the tree, but a real tree is GREEN a fake tree is not. So start with a real tree. Real trees have real roots, so real roots means real pot, real dirt, and real water (see how I slipped in water cooling).
