Good job on this one! I love the aesthetics of it, the only thing I don't like is the usb 3 on the front since the blue stands out, but overall everything looks very pleasing to the eyes

Im not sure about the SSD mounting. I'd be afraid the power supply would cause issues with the SSD and possibly cause data loss.

You could have left the scratches, done some etchings in black n some slight buffing n then submerged the whole thing in vinegar, to add some aged paitena appearance then clear coated the whole thing.

Im new to your channel, are you against using power tools? I could have polished that thing to a glow in an hour with my orbital sander and buffing wheels. But I figured maybe you do things old school on this channel.

Fantastic job! However, I would have kept the brass sides free of holes, and made the front as leather, and the back as leather with power wires there.

Love the premise and overall aesthetic. You should consider investing in a couple of tools such as radius gauges, and a small 3 in 1 sheetmetal break, shear, and roller.It's make the fabrication of things like this a bit easier and faster.

What beautiful work, stunning use of brass and leather. Have you considered an enthusiast keyboard to go along with it? Prehaps using similar materials to match the aesthetic you were going for, brass is becoming increasingly popular in enthusiast keyboards and I think you'd be pleased with how they can look, knowing you, you'd probably make a great looking one on your own for your setup. I hope you'll consider it, I would love to see it.

for your cleaning process you might try playing with ferric chloride; the liquid used to etch copper circuit boards, depending on your desired effect it sometimes leads in to some interesting texture on different metals(with or without cleaning, look into acid etched knives)... love what you do, great stuff:)
