    It is very diffucult and dangerous , to criticize a nice worklog, but I would like to appeal to some things.

    Most of what I say are not problems of your case only. classic problem in these desk cases.
    You say: “I wanted to see my Hardware and all components under a glass top. “
    This is a PC case. main equipment in a PC case is MB. main thing that I want to see…

    But it is very diffucult to see MB in your desk. As if it especially hidden ..

    [​IMG]



    Of course we do not sit on the back side of the table
    Keyboard ,Mousepad and Mouse.., they should not be here.
    By doing this , you show yourself problems…

    [​IMG]





    If we get them to the right place…
    not much thing left…from the Show…

    [​IMG]




    if we can not do anything as design,
    We can use a smaller keyboard

    [​IMG]


    or we can use a mini keyboard on the glass desk.

    [​IMG]


    As Mouse we can use
    logitech Anywhere Mouse MX or Performance MX with darkfield technologie, to work on glass and
    we DONT NEED A MOUSEPAD on the glass.

    Friends which make a Desk case , must solve this problem .

    ohh yeahh, my Worklog is online , I received no notification.

    @Cheapscate
    Thanks , I did not manage to and can not see how you've done it now .

    @icelander
    Thanks

    @arg-ist
    you're right,I had unfortunately not much space to build it larger.
    The emphasis is not on "hardware" , but on "under glass".
    Finally, I look not always on the PC but on the Monitor

    all right, lets go

    my basic idea

    [​IMG]

    i buy Wood and take MDF

    [​IMG]

    i dowel and glue it, make the fan holes, installed the fan grills, a power supplie bracket and as you can see the Mainboard tray

    [​IMG]

    then i installed the aluminum angle

    [​IMG]

    and i painted it with spray can

    [​IMG]

    ready

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and i needed a cover for cable channel

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    now i had to design the base frame

    [​IMG]

    i welded and painted it

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    then i need the drive bracket, i take remains aluminum angle and acrylic glass

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    the same for the HDD bracket with more style

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    i have installed many LED´s

    [​IMG]

    READY

    [​IMG]

    i had black Radiators and paint them white

    [​IMG]

    later i got a alphacool Monsta

    [​IMG]

    well, i make all cable with paracord sleevs, was a good weekend

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    the LED´s with sleevs

    [​IMG]

    a few ports for light and fan

    [​IMG]

    the buttons and switches

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    a Weekend of work with tubing

    [​IMG]

    the insulation

    [​IMG]

    then i make a acrylic plate for the Mainboard for more clean optik

    [​IMG]

    i have covered them with foil. Aluminum black brushed

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    on backside i used foam rubber for cable let through

    [​IMG]

    the same foil for all drives and hdds

    [​IMG]

    then i make a aperture for temperature display

    [​IMG]

    with reflectors and more White acylic for better light scattering

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    i paint the Reservoir´s from nickel to black

    [​IMG]

    and make a Little cover for the Buttons-, Switches cable inside

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I am finished

    and the best for last,

    my desk won the second place on the DCMM (German Case Modding Championship)
