Yeah, I forget there are other building techniques...
Well finally prepped for chrome Or technically nickel-plating. Think is went a bit overkill but these are the hinges that keep up the glass
They're covered in oil atm to not get surface rust so it looks a bit weird but you will get more pictures as they're all nickelplated and shiny
I like everything about this build
but the over-engineering in particular is what keeps me excited for uploads
Thanks, It's just something nice about making things a bit overkill. That being said I really just draw things up and if the aesthetic forces a large amount of materials or a time consuming option to get it right I really just plow along with little regard to details such as my own time.
Well just so you don't think I died or anything I went on a 12 hour roadtrip today.
Everything has bent sent off to chrome-plating in sweden after a pretty riddiculus amount of sandpaperwork Here's a map of the "vacation" I'll return with pictures when I get them back
That part where you drive across the Baltic must be what eats up so much time.
Technically there was a boat there in the mix
I did a gooblemaps tour of the area yesterday during breakfast. For someone stuck in urban sprawl, those islands look absolutely awesome, (at least in Summer.) Living on a rock the size of the local grocery store parking lot would be great.
What country do you reside in then? Finland is insanely sparsely populated
Suburban Houston, Texas. I guess it's not Bangladesh, but the roads are like a parking lot, and the parking lots are like racetracks.
-Sorry about going off topic.
wheres the progress i just read through this, and im hella impressed but now feel empty as there was no hardware porn to match the custom build porn!
We'll get there Things or off to chrome as we speak, sadly I have a pretty full schedule so I can't always go forth with the speed I wish. Hold on
haha can relate! lovely build brother, subbed to watch where it goes!
Ye for those who missed it the screen has been decided. I'm gonna get myself a 49 inch samsung. Drew up a size comparison as well. Unfortunately I will have to remake the whole monitor stand but I got an idea for it which you will see in due time.
This is a fantastic desk build! That varnish and shaping of the rounded corners OMG! Absolutely beautiful my man!
Well time to get back to work after my first vacation in quite some time
Got the cabelholders watercut. Next up is sanding them to about 500 grit and then powder coating. I'm decently happy with how they turned out. I went with 8mm 1365 steel this time for some true strength.
There's room for 6 cabels ontop of each other in each opening and 6 satadata cabels in the wider hole. I'll drill true them and mount them with screws down in the table.
I got 8 of them so I can have 1 every 10 centimeters or so
And then the beast has arrived 49 inches of samsung goodness. Still in the box because we need to weld a new stand for this thing but it's all good.
And lastly some more trivial things like 60 fittigs for watercooling, internal usb 3.0 extenders. 90 degree connections for sata ports etc etc. I got my work cut out for me!
Here's the mess^^
Time to show what it looks with the screen on. Bear in mind I'll make a custom stand for it but I already love it.
So when can I buy one?
Amazing work. Are you keeping the black plastic surround on the monitor?
If I know myself probably not
