The last of the WIP cellphone pictures, I promise. My camera is at work, so I'm having to wait until Monday for close-ups.
Please bear with me!
For all intents and purposes, this is the 'finished' product. I still need to go over a few areas with a spray-on sealant to keep the paint from scratching.
Farm diesel handle (spray painted red)
Black tubing, found at a home supply store
Copper wiring (in red and black)
PVC pipe in varying sizes
A toy bucket
Tons of hot glue, black electrical tape and splicing tape
It took about two weeks to collect, paint, and assemble everything. My husband was a huge help, though we both lost some blood to this project. There are a couple parts that I know are incorrect - the water bottle is the most noticeable, but I'm ridiculously proud of this thing.
It's a little heavier than I would have liked (I estimate 5-6 lbs), but that's where the shoulder strap comes in. It's what my husband used to transport his PC to LAN parties during his nerdier years. XD (He wants me to point out that it's a Thermaltake brand, for anyone who wants to replicate it)
It never occurred to me that people would want to replicate this thing. If you have any in-depth questions about how this was made, where we found the parts, etc., feel free to contact me and I'll do my best to steer you in the right direction.
