I had to learn, how to handle / cut / grind / glue glass to this project.
It was a learning curve. It took some time, but I can say to the whole mod "I have made it!"
I learned not in my workshop, and it was not the first pile of glass.
3mm would be enough, but I went whit the 5mm thicknes.
Back "home", in my workshop
All the edges where sharp, so I had to grind them first.
The raw and the grinded edge
First test fit.
...and YES, a lot RGB LEDs are already in the case.
Of core, I measured correct, but forgot to extract the material thickness. Si O had to cut down 5mm... whitout any propper glass cutting tool. But I worked my way araund. Whit a Dremel + Diamand cutting wheel I scratched the line. Then whit pliers i chipped down, slow and careful.
