I am planning on getting my case side panel cut with a custom design: perhaps some cool text or something abstract.
I was wondering what the best method of cutting is?
I want a real smooth edge around the cut with as little damage to the panel as possible, but it can't be ridiculously expensive.
I have heard about laser, water jet, cnc, jigsaws and dremels - but I am not sure what would be best.
Any input from people who have done mods in the past would be a great help.
Also, I will want to cover the cut with some acrylic (most likely) and wonder would it be better to mount it behind the cut or at the front? With screws or with adhesive?
Thanks a lot guys.

(might even be some $$$ left over) It's not hard to do yourself, you just have to take your time and be patient. Just out of curiosity.....what's the cost for getting it done the other ways?
Here's a couple of tutorials for you......

If you were getting this done, what text would you guys get?
