I think Ill go with option nr 3, for now at least. I find the angle interesting. And with that stand I could build in a weight of some kind to keep it steady and avoid a possible fall on the nose. Im also thinking about placing an accessible usb-port on the foot. Helps me keep the main build clean...


Anyway, some todays work:



Front and back frames glued and sanded


Veneering time. But first, cover those holes


Little pieces of MDF did the trick


Veneer under pressure


Cut some support pieces for the roof veneer


Glue


Support


Squash it!


Also got rid of the VGA port today. Tore it! Got kinda violent. Cutting the pins was not enough. I had to get the damn toolbox. Well well, its done. Dont know if Im gonna try heating the pins off. Maybe just put some protection on it.

Got some work done today



Pieces


This is how I solved the usb issue, with a hidden canal


On the other side


Glue


The rest of that canal, hidden in the top piece


veneer


I decided to make a classic profile on the base. Looks good IMO





The two feet. Theyre only 20x20mm thick so I hope theyll carry. Well know soon...
I also made a hole straight thought one of them for the usb wire.


This is how itll look


Made the bottom also


Heres that well needed weight. 160x120x17mm, and quite heavy for its size...


I aslo leave you with a question, this time regarding the DVD eject button.
Going to make extension. Im looking for soldering spots. The circled ones seemes right... or??

Oh I hate difficult to diagnose problems & not having enough spare parts to mix match to find the actual offending piece .

Certainly had that problem you mention & like said can't really find the fault without spare parts .

might be a stupid question but have you tested the individual components against known good hardware. other than the mobo the first thing i would look at is the PSU, the issue you describe sounds alot like one i had ages ago running a newer mobo on an older PSU. the ATX PSU spec has changed over the years and newer mobo's are not always compatible with PSU's bassed on older versions of the spec.

Nice job so far man! Walnut is beautiful

Like you, Wayne and j0rd, I'm sure I had this problem before, just can't remember what it was, apart from that mobo was actually ok.

What j0rd said sounds just like a prob I had a while ago & same symptoms as this, older but great PSU just not playing ball properly with the newer mobo, PITA without spare parts .

I thought about it... The Shuttle 250W was kind of a try out. But since I tested with a corsair 430(same issues there), I dont know. Should I go as far as try with an even newer power supply?

After a rough weekend filled with computer issues I started this afternoon with some more woodwork.


I milled the DVD slot with high precision... Perfect! ... wait a minute ... its... its...


... ON THE WRONG F*CKING SIDE! Reminder for future projects: THINK!


To hide the mistake I did some more milling Thinking of having some mesh in there.


I also made the front.


Joystick slot


The front will have some kind of stain later


Heres the beautiful brass window. "Steampunkish" some might call it...

Got my risers aswell.
