    Project: Ark of the Covenant Mod

    So I decided to use the shape of the ten commandments as the window, since they are what is in the Ark. I found a pic online



    Then cut out the shape and drew it on the panel.



    Looks interesting



    Hard to cut the curves



    I want to coat this side with the mesh too, but should I cut out the commandments here too or leave it covered?



    I was drilling the holes for the rivets and bent my new bit!!





    Painted it gold too.



    Started on the other front bezel beam.

    You bent a drill bit? Never done that before, they've always broken instead.

    The mesh (especially painted) adds a truly classic touch to it and makes for incredible detail as well, excellent idea.

    razer -- its a "home improvement"/hardware store -- I think they use those kinds of mesh as radiator covers. like old school steam radiators.

    At the stores i have been to (in the US) they have that kind of thing in the same aisle that they have diamond plating, plain sheet metal, and angle iron. Its worth a trip out to the local hardware store to see what they have, even if it is pretty expensive.

    You so have to come over for some shopping!

    Here's the gold layer on the pillar



    I cut off the top piece of mesh so that the board will lay flatter and it left a cool effect.



    So much more to do and this is where I'm heading...

    So more work to show.

    This is what I'm shooting for.





    Here's how I'll do it. I used good ol' expanding foam to fill in the pillar



    I have this thin rod



    I had to cut it to size



    Then I dropped in the rod



    And drilled a hole in the plywood base



    I checked to make sure that the rod will fit.



    And shaved off the excess foam



    Then all I had to do was set the pillar on top and push the rod through the top and bottom.





    Three to go.
