Hi everyone here at bit-tech! First of all I’d like to say hello to all of you here at this awesome community. Second, I’d like to introduce all of you to my project: Desk MK I SPONSORED BY The project started out as something to please my now exgirlfriend. After I had remodeled my old case, an Antec P180 mini, with all lazer, UV lights and all of the world’s glory, she started to grow tired of seeing the case all the time. At that time I had already been browsing bit-tech and various other modding sites for inspiration and a thing that caught my attention was the desks. I started thinking how I wanted it to be and what needs I had. This is what I ended up with: It’s a pretty basic design, and I want to add a drawer below the hardwarearea, but since I don’t know how much space the hardware room will take, I’ve excluded it from the design. I want to create an acrylic “case” to put the motherboard inside, leaving the PSU, the watercooling and all fans apart from the two-three ones creating airflow inside the hardware, hidden from the visual eye. I already have a plate which I’m going to use for this project. The plan is to sand it down and dye it with a grey-ish brown to create some contrast to the matt black colour I’ll be painting the furniture in. Now let’s get to the interesting part of a worklog: pictures! I’m lucky to work at a woodworker/carpenter. He’s an old, rugged man who knows everything about carpenting there is to know. I talked a bit with him about my plan and he offered to help me cut out the pieces. Here’s the saw. I didn’t use it myself seeing it needs a bit of experience. Everything cut out nice and clean Now, I borrowed this tool and got all the plates transported home. First thing to do was to draw a rough sketch of what I wanted to cut out. And here’s how it looks cut out. It was a bit trickier than I thought and I wasn’t really super happy with the result, but it’ll do. Secondly, I had downloaded a sketch of a 360 rad from Aquatuning’s webpage. I cut out the center marking the holes for fans and airflowspace and used that for measuring where to cut. Here’s how it ended looking cut out. I’m quite happy with that, but I think for further reference I’ll be using the saw before using the other machine. That’s it for now. Right now I’m looking where to get some mesh without having to pay a fortune, that stuff is expensive! I hope you guys will be interested in following me on this journey. By the way, constructive criticism is more than welcome. Feel free to ask any questions about anything, and I’ll gladly answer! - Vognen P.S: What’s the depth required for the hardware compound? I’m thinking of making 1-2 cm. for cablerouting leaving me with the estimate of 20 cm. Is that totally off?
