    I am pleased to present the LUXURY project based on the Antec Striker cabinet where the main feature is the aesthetic charm and luxury given by different raw materials and manufacturing processes.

    It will be decorated with mahogany wood, first choice calfskin and alphabetic murrine of Murano.

    The combination of chrome products such as the RAM Trident Z Royal of G.Skill and the fittings of the Bitspower will be an optical contrast highlighting the beauty.

    The structure is all covered in mahogany wood with sides and front of the cabinet with padded leather and hand-sewn.

    A salient feature is to cover the liquid cooling pipes with sewn-on skin.

    The idea is to create something compact and beautiful to see that looks good on a desk or rather in the living room.

    Thanks the sponsors :

    Here are also the custom cables made by Solid Strands. The care and precision of realization is maniacal with an addition of particularity in the power cord with real black braided nappa leather.

    There it is! I've been waiting for the parts posting to end. :lol: Looking fantastic.
    I'm unfamiliar with the original case. Are those new wood panels or veneer on the original case?
    The front grill looks great too. :D

    Thank you very much Cheapskate :rock:
    Yes, it is mahogany veneer and is applied directly on the steel panels of the cabinet. Making it just wood would have been too thin as structure.
    I wanted to create the grill with a floral effect. I hope I succeeded :grin:

    We begin to disassemble the cabinet to be able to cover the inside with mahogany veneer.

    ahahah it is true.
    For now with this I thought to give an optical contrast with waterblock, fittings and ram chrome. Let’s make a variant by inserting waterblocks and wooden fittings and give a visual contrast through the chrome tubes :rock:

    The theme of elegance and style is also coined by the use of high-quality calfskin that will cover the sides and the front of the cabinet Antec Striker.
