Junior This is my first submission to Bit-Tech.net for a scratch build. Two of my passions are woodworking and computers, so I thought it was fitting to bring the two together. My goal is to create a one-of-a-kind box that in no way looks like a computer. I want to hide the computer aspects of my project, so away with the power/HDD LEDs, and hide the power/eject buttons as well as the optical tray cover. There will also be some lighting effects. My build is inspired by the Greene and Greene motif, made with quarter-sawn mahogany and some ebony accents. It will be the home for a mini-ITX system. The wood was in my garage acclimating for a couple of weeks prior to cutting. I started by running the rough stock through the jointer then the thickness planer. This will be a small case, so all of the pieces here are ½” thick. It’s a frame and panel design, so the rails and stiles were cut to rough dimensions. Finger joints and pegs laid out for the corners of the frames. Front, sides, back and top grouped together and ready for cutting. The rough-cut wood in back will be used for the top panel and other miscellaneous parts. Mortising the holes for the square pegs. The frames will be joined with tongues and rabbets. The rabbets will also accept the mica panels. Finally, the case is starting to take shape.
