Hey fellow builders and modders., This is the third dual PC case I'm attempting and my first worklog on Bit-tech. In the previous attempts I've built cases from an alloy frame and then dressed this with alloy and timber panels. The mother- board trays were placed back to back with one mobo inverted, while this set up had some benefits it was less than ideal so this time I'll be making a wooden case with the mobo's one above the other. The PSU's will be housed on one side of the case and a basic ventilation scheme is planned whereby cool air is drawn in from below and expelled via an opening in the top. So let's start........ First up the design will be simple with little decoration, preferring the wood to be the focus of attention. A basic frame needs to be made. This is made from a meranti frame and a West Australian Jarrah and meranti front panel. The three pieces of the front panel were glued up with biscuits and the frame was glued up with dowel and screws and then glued to the front panel with biscuits. For the top vent four pieces of wood were cut and glued together with mitered corners. And then this frame was glued and screwed to the case. Then the bottom intake and base was made but with this part simple butt joints with dowel was used. Now a baffle or cover needs to be made to cover the top vent. This must use the most interesting pieces of wood because it's the most obvious part. I like to sand down the parts and give them a thick coat of polyurethane to protect them from stains. And it looks like this so far with the baffle/top just sitting on some scrap. A close up. Now I need to make some door frames from the Jarrah. With the frames assembled a recess needs to be routed on the inside to house a panel (that I haven't thought too much about yet). And the corners squared off with a chisel. Some wheels added to the case and I can now think about the inside. I guess it's not very clear how this will work, well there will be two access doors and nothing else showing from the outside that this is a PC. The two PC's inside will be controlled through a breakout box that will sit on my desk, there are still some things to workout but you will see what I mean as the project goes forward.
