    While I was at the acrylic laser cutting shop (Where I have been quite often in the past week :p), I got some other stuff made as well.

    Shelves for my newly acquired Swan M10 speakers. Also got the Swan logo laser etched.

    Also got a simple cover for the mouse (No monies for laser etching on this one)

    And finally the ugly duckling. This was meant to be a stand for my Fiio E07K DAC and also have a pair of metallic audio couples for my headphones speakers, so I could switch between the two devices without having to wear out the connectors on my audio devices and yet be able to use the DAC for both the headphones/speakers. However due to the thickness of the acrylic and 180deg bends, the acrylic snapped in two places and also had to be overheated, thus trapping air bubbles. It looks ugly as anything, but it is functional.

    I haven't had time to install these, once I do, there shall be moar pics.

    LOL. I hate it too, but can't help it. I was thinking maybe I should get a wallmount and hide the switchboard.

    Bigger table is not happening, there just isn't enough room.

    My table is so damn cluttered, hoping with a wall mount, it becomes less cluttered.

    That looks super kewl :)
    When are you going back there again?
    Me wanna go :(

    Now you too need the switchboard covers that I do :)
    I figured out a way to get them covered..
    Just need to decide on what goes on the top.. as in the visible part.
    Have 3 idea that am going to try... Canvas painting.. Very high end photo frame with printed saying or something...
    and your etched acrylic.. either lit or unlit.
