A chance encounter with Dave
When I joined dA, Dave’s gallery was the first I stumbled upon (a serendipity, yes). I have been chained to the site ever since with his quips and dry sense of humour.
Who is he really? A photographer? A musician? His mother’s son?!
Not focusing merely on the photographer, let’s take a closer look at his personality and explore how an abstract artist  sounds more like a modern philosopher..
#1 Your name: davespertine.. clever word play, where did the idea come from?

finding names to use as unique id for websites is a new phenomenon
unless we get in there quickly our preferred names are already taken
so to avoid simply putting numbers after those original choices we have to invent new names
i started looking through my dictionary at words which started ave, with the view to putting a d on the front to form dave+restofword
avenge - too vengeful
avenue, average - too average
i didn't like those, the word has to have something both in meaning but also in so

I craft, make, create, invent and design new surroundings....

my basic interests include: Design, Woodworking, Metalworking, Gardening, Architecture, Street Art, Performance and many more...

Current Residence: Switzerland
Operating System: Linux
I can`t quite believe it myself, but the whole MyBook - modding scheme took me only one day to finish....
So of course I am rather proud of how it turned out.... but I`m also rather sad because now I have to find something new to do with my spare time :-(

I like your leather wrapped Mybook mod.
I have made some extensive wood based mods (including the only wooden iPod)

I suggest on your shuttle PC to use a veneer next time, they are still real wood, but work well for skinning a PC. It is also much cheaper to get a nice veneer then nice hardwood.

See my wooden shuttle here:

Other wood mods are listed in other areas of my flickr page.

that case looks really nifty! I like the etching you did on the front - looks perfect, but then again, thats what I`ve come to expect using laser cutters :-)

I was thinking about using veneer at first, too... but I don`t have any experience using veneer and the veneers available at the local mall were boring to say the least.
