See your handling the scroll saw nicely they are an awesome home modding tool.

This is catching a vote from me too.

I can't beleive that I have not yet commented on this, I saw it in it's early stages but then well, I must have forgotten about it :doh:

Very impressive skills and ideas you have there desk builds are awesome and there can never be too many!
It is nice to see another modder from SA. (BTW where in SA are you located? )

I really like the curvy design and the logo for the radiators and the general construction and execution is top notch. I will be keeping an eye on this

Thanks for the welcome.

I should be able to find them somewhere, although too bad I don't have any access to mills or laser cutting anywhere around here, much less water jets. Well, we can all dream, can't we? :P

My parents won't ever let me handle power tools. At best maybe a heat gun or high powered hairdryer for sleeving so I can shrink the heatshrink if I don't decide to do shrink-less sleeving.

Update for 7th July

Another Saturday so more time in the workshop Was really eager to get stuck in today and was hoping to get more done (as always) but alas.. father time was against me.. just never enough hours in a day

But still managed to get some good progress in, again I am sorry they crappy phone pics but once the main build is complete I will take a real camera into the workshop and get some decent shots..

kicked off the morning by getting the back plate mounted, really been looking forward to getting these on!!

As you can see its still missing the central sections and also still needs all the edges to be cleaned up properly.

I did however clean off the bottom of the feet, more so I could roll this thing over to get to the front plate.. lifting this thing is starting to get really difficult


Got the front plate mounted and also cleaned off the bottom of the legs


While grinding the plate down I could feel that my spine was starting to write a resignation letter with a really sharp pencil so decided to give it a break and work on the I/O plate I had cut out.. As I was putting it into the press brake I realised I probably should have bent it first before cutting the sections out.. it gave very little area for some of the bends.. And of course.. as I expected it shifted in the press break..


So now it lives with the rest of its scrap friends...


After I stop swearing at myself for not having realised that there wouldn't be enough material to bend sooner so got some work done on the support base for the screen mounts, milled the bottom out to sit between two of the support struts and then turned out the center this is where a 76mm pipe will be seated for the screens to mount to.


Then gave the outside a bit more of a decent profile


Tested fitment, still needed to turn a slot for the plates to fit into


Looking good so far.. so before anying else went wrong I quickly got the slot cut in


Im thinking of getting this piece anodized blue to fit with my colour scheme.. really happy with the way it turned out..



did a bit more cleanup of the edges and also marked out the area to cut for the plexiglass (no not the black marker.. it marked on the inside properly


So this is it for the moment..








I didnt get a chance to work on the new mobo tray or even cut out the old one.. and now i will also have to re-do the I/O plate but will need to get that bent BEFORE getting it onto the scroll saw

I am also playing with some ideas of using plexiglas for the center of the front of the case.. as apposed to closing that off with aluminium.. I will do some quick renders and update..

UPDATE
So here is the original idea with the aluminium center..


And this is then with the plexi.. i may change the layout slightly if i go with the plexi..


What do you guys think?? aluminium or plexi center??

That's all for this week, thanks again for checkin in

Hooooly crap. I wish I could make my own monitor stands/supports. I wanted to go multi-monitor without bezels/the thinnest bezel possible. You make me so jealous. Take that as a compliment.

Really gorgeous!
Would love to see glass/plexi center for a change

No idea if it's in your plans or if it's even possible ... the screenmount, if you would cut a piece out on the back it will make it much easier to change cables or remove it.
Just attach it to one side and let it rest on the other.

For the plexi centre... What about a design cut out, something with a glow or is it too flashy?

Thanks bud!! im leaning more an more towards the plexi

For the monitor stand, I took a look at yours but the thing is I need the strength to mount 3x23" screens onto the tube, so i cant just mount it to one of the plates, it would just buckle. You cant really see in the pics but the hole goes right through the aluminium base, the 76mm tube will slide into that and the screens will mount onto it but allow me to run the cables through the tube into the case all hidden like

I did a quick sketchup to kind of show you, the aluminium at the bottom will be mounted into the frame for support, i have hidden certain parts of the desk so you can see how it fits together. But appreciate the suggestion mate

Any idea what you're going to be using to hold up the other 2 monitors that looks sleek? Unfortunately, monitors can't float (screw gravity).

Haha, it's you. Saw your desk on OCN. It's been a very very long time but I'm going to say congrats and good job on the desk.

Yup, its a special hinge system for multi monitors, the two outside screens attach to the center screen with these

And there's one of the neat things that can be done with lathes again some things simply need a lathe but for the few things I'd use one for I can't justify the cost of 1, not yet anyway.

Awesome piece made there.

Unlucky on the first pci/io back piece, I never did get around to perfecting the bending method for a 1mm panel version, made some smaller bending fingers for the different sections of bend though, before perfecting that I started using 5 layers instead to make a solid one after seeing a billet 1 piece one on a project called Limey & fell in love with the idea which translates to multiple layers brilliantly.
