Take it easy with the ebony. It's probably poached.
The stain job came out fantastic.
Oh I'm not messing with ebony lol, glad you liked the staining. It was a ridiculously work intensive process to make it come out that way. More pictures coming really soon
Was time for a new video so enjoy and give feedback
Kudos my friend you are a true master woodsman , a work of art. Cant wait for your next update.
Much appreciated, thank you
The headphone dac youre gonna use is that both a dac+amp? or do you intend to use one of each? (sorry for an offtopic question)
It's both an AMP and a DAC. I'm actually making a headphone stand as well in theme with the build which you will see very soon. As is tradition it is also somewhat overbuilt
Sounds promising, do you have a link for that amp/dac?
I got the same one but from Mayflower Electronics. I absolutely love it and it was small enough to trow into the computertable.
Well hello again
I'll start off with some pictures of the table after the varnishing (yet to get nanowax treatment) and if you scroll further down you'll see some of the cablework.
nevermind the dust It will dissapear
Now onto the cablework. Thanks again to ICEMODZ for chipping in and helping me out on this!
First things first I had to get everything out. My living room once again is a mess
Just did a bunch of y-splitters for these cables and I run them on 2 different knobs on the fan controller
Might be a tip for anyone new to this to grab one of these so you make sure you get it right without blowing any components up
Then I proceeded to hide pretty much every fan cable in the actual frame.
Sneaky sneaky cable management
Had to heatshrink all the y-splitters
The 360 radiator fans did get sleeved however because they will be somewhat visible
Testrunning everything. Worked
This is just a temporary solution because everything will keep going in and out
For those wondering the fan cables from the back radiators (the 560 monstahs) will be run underneath the side fans and completely hidden
My first sleeved cable this one will run the fan controller
And this is what comes out after the wood comes back down
And after this I'll get onto more cable work. Until next time
The desk makes your hardwood flooring look bad.
Outstanding work. Love the mix of wood and metalwork.
Suppose I need to redo the flooring then
Well happy halloween, I dressed up as usual to my "homeless elf" costume and did some cablework This is pretty time consuming stuff I'm learning as I go but after 2 attempts on my harddrive cable this is what I ended up with
And by some miracle it worked
Going off the rails here a little bit but I wanted something that suited the table where I could rest my headphones when I'm not using them so I made a custom headphone stand.
Plasmacut some stainless 4mm thick circular plates and lathed and treaded some 30 mm stainless shaftsteel. Then proceeded to make some holes and this is what the mounting device looks like.
And yeah It will get the same Birch style wood with 12 layers of varnish That being said I sent the wood off for some final treatment so it doesn't get scratched by the heavy use. So you will see it all together on friday evening but heres the metal at least
Here's the finished headphone stand. It became a little bit overbuilt but I like it. Got 10 or 11 layers of varnish cant remember..
Soon I got a complete office
An appropriate stand for an iconic set of cans Works and looks perfect with the Desk too! is there nothing you cant make look amazing!
Awesome. Now to find a stud in the wall, because there's no way drywall will hold that up.
My house is built of stone and mortar
