The Totally Awesome Steampunk iPod

There is just something about steampunk tech that makes us gush about it. Is it the combination of the aesthetic from times gone by with tech from today? Or do we just really like brass? Whatever the reason, there is no denying that this steampunk iPod case is a neat piece of work that is worth sharing.

In order to steampunkify his iPod for his very first Instructable, Instructables user Brass Eyes needed to find the right case to mod.

The project began to take shape once he found the burl walnut card case which forms the foundation for his design. Other materials that were used in this case were also creatively sourced, like brass brackets found in a model railway store. The only tools he used for this project were basic hand tools, an electric drill and an inexpensive Dremel-like tool.

Check out the project on Instructables for even more images.
