After 5 years of thinking about it, I’m finally getting around to building a new PC. I’ve been building out an Art Deco themed office behind a hidden bookshelf door, and now that I’m finally done with the bookshelf door and built in desk, it’s time to make a PC! There’s not much on the walls at this point, and the desk itself is quite small, so I figured I’d make a wall-mounted statement piece of a PC that goes with the room and can save some desk space. Rather than just slapping the parts up on a sheet of plywood, I’m going to try to make something a little more interesting. I’ll be using veneer and a specific prop I have in mind to make a decently unique design (AFAIK) that will be a sort of star burst pattern on two pieces separated by the motherboard. A vertically mounted graphics card will go on top of the mother board, and an Eisball pump/res combo on top of that. It’s more or less figured out in my head at this point and so I think I’ll just wing it. Fair warning, I’m pretty inexperienced- this will be my first water cooled build, and third PC build (built my first in 2016 and helped a friend with one). I’ve only got some of the more basic wood working tools that I’ve been collecting since my wedding (chop saw, table saw, router…), and I have no experience veneering. So this is probably going to be a long build log filled with a lot of mistakes. I started it now because I finally dropped cash on the first part (3080ti), and am picking up some of the veneering materials after work today (might do a couple practice attempts first ). Obviously, I’ll be posting pictures of the process- we’ll see how this goes!
