The Sangaku Case Mod

Computers & Mobile

0,1425,Sz=1&I=114470,00300 hours and approximately 130 wood joints to build, Nicholas Falzone’s excellent case mod “The Sangaku case mod a fusion of computer technology with Japanese the furniture-making tradition. Sangaku translates to “mathematics tablet” in Japanese. The top connects the sides, with the shorter pieces lining up with the lines from the doors and the acrylic strip carrying the black from the front of the case up and over through the back. The two sides started out being four sliding shoji doors, two per side, but to get the lighting to work, I combined the two on one side. The joinery on the doors was made almost entirely by hand, using Japanese chisels and a dozuki saw.” [via] Link.
