THIS IS GOING TO BE AWESOME

I was only thinking about a month or so ago that after seeing 2 of the other amazing desk builds that maybe I should build one using my SR-2 hardware as I have the space but in reality I don't have access to all the metal work machines so it probably wont happen for me but im glad someone is building a monster desk with an SR-2 and I hope you over-clock the hell out of it, im rock solid @ 4.2ghz with my X5650's

Oh and are you not going to use the EK SR-2 chipset water block?

So I thought I'd throw up a quick update before I disappear for new year I've been finishing off the legs today, as the metal rod for the attachment arrived a few days ago.

After the weekend I should be powering ahead with the frame as I now have a time restraint on the use of the workshop, but I'll explain that one at the end

Righty, today saw the lathe coming out to play, everyone, meet the little lathe...



half a leg base and the bar to fit into it



The best part of using a lathe, it makes finishes like this take about 30 seconds









and add the little feet



I'll be finishing the bars next week

The reason why I need to stop faffing about; My Dad (proud owner of this workshop) is building a 4 inch scale traction engine, he hasn't been able to carry on with it as he's been waiting for a casting...



The cylinder block, so he needs me to get off the milling machine and clean all the aluminium off it so he can start work on this :P

Happy New Year !

Thanks I seem to have ended up on quite a few sites now, started out on one I posted on years ago another where I used to work, then two that I bought stuff from and it has just sort of carried on

But the comments and suggestions and questions I've been getting have been worth the upkeep

thanks again to everyone for reading, should be getting back into it this week before I get bullied out of the workshop.

So I've been a bit quiet of late, I wanted to have a bit more done for this update but it might be a week or so until I can get the rest done so it seemed like a good point to stop and post some pictures

Here's where we left off, I was about half way through the leg pieces, they had incomplete uprights and no end caps.



And then on with the new stuff

Finishing up the leg attachment bars







Making space for the power switch and usbs





















Milled the slot for the DVD drive







These were a bit of a pain in the arse to make... but the came up nice in the end









Right, back to the frame finished up the small angled sections so I could mount the panels to them...













and an attached leg...



The end caps came out well too





And back to the dvd drive...





That's all for now as far as the desk goes The screws holding the usbs and DVD drive are just ones I found that fit, I'm waiting on the new ones that match the rest of the desk

Should be getting my replacement blocks from EK this week and I think I've found the colour I want to paint the frame... the panels will be black powder coat so mat black.

I was doing some climbing at an indoor wall a week or so ago and spotted a water bottle lying about... a red sigg bottle to be a bit more precise.

So what do you all think about...

Red?

This is amazing. You have plans for the desk top to be openable (As in open like a lid) so you can access parts easier?

I think you should leave it raw.

Looks phenomenal with those nuts and bolts.

The glass is the same size as the top so it will just sit on top, it's heavy enough to not go anywhere of its own accord so to get inside you just slide the glass off

and the bolts are stainless so they will stay the same for good I like to be able to see the gubbins when I build stuff, so the frame will be the red, the joints will be brushed or powder black same as the panels, but hopefully i can render some full quality images of the corners from my designs, but it may be quicker to build it and find out, the current pc isn't feeling up to it :P

I like that red on the Sigg bottle, just remember that the powder coating will only be a one-tone colour laid on thick, so make sure you pick the exact shade you like

Loving the build, It's the attention to detail that definitely makes this one worthwhile




Edit: Spazzy Spelling.
