Thank you so much! I love when my work gets labeled as work of art because that's exactly what I aim to!

A quick look at the first tubing mock-up. I thought I would do something less intricate with the loop this time but I just can't help it, I love parallel runs



Made the bracket for the PSU mounting in the top section





I reshaped the two back panels with this characteristic cut I'm bringing along this whole project, to make it smoother and more geometric



Also began working on the front and top panels cutouts, I made this simple design in Silhouette Studio, cut the stencil and went over it with a pen once I applied it to the panel, this way all the sections in both panels will be exactly the same. It would've been hard doing it by hand since they're very irregular shapes. Obviously cut with my trusty scrollsaw











And as anticipated in the previous post, I swapped the red LEDs of the lightbox with WRGB strips

There's a lot to be said for parallel tubed loops, I personally love them over intricate complex bends, plus given the nature of your build with the sharp angles and edges straight pipes would compliment it way more over curves. Keep it up man this is fast becoming my all time drool worthy build log.
