    Hello.

    I have long wanted to make a computer case that would take up as little space as possible on the desktop. This case, for me, has always been an aio... It has many disadvantages, so I will try to create something that is most suitable for my tasks.

    There are doubts.
    The fact is that one of those people who tried to implement this idea based on the imac, did not finish his project, although it was quite promising.

    I will try to implement everything that is in my head in life-I hope I will succeed, and if not, I at least tried! :)

    I will make an aio out of pieces plywood left in the workshop.

    Look forward to seeing your ideas. And that is a whole mountain range of sawdust on your bench!

    I suspect this is going to be spectacular.
    Your 'scrap' looks like it's coming from some high quality work.

    Thx :happy:

    There was one unpleasant moment when gluing, which I expected -
    different width of plywood from 14.5 to 15 mm. Because of this, I didn't get an even angle in the entire plane. Most likely, the fact that he was lying in different places, including in a wet room.
    In addition, during the strength test, one of the parts broke.:duh:

    So I had to buy a new piece of plywood!:naughty:

    You should still be able to rescue the old one for a panel or something.

    Looking great so far :thumb:, I'm intrigued to see the full design :)
    Are you wanting the show the individual layers? as if not, you can take bendy Plywood like this: https://www.pbplywood.com/5mm-flexible-plywood.html, and wrap it over the whole part. I've made curved kitchen cabinet doors out of it, its great stuff.

    As a woodworker I'm loving this build and the plywood endgrain going on why not just use woodfiller and sand will look super modern?
