    Update 23.

    This weekend i did some work on the desk again.To get acces to de back of the desk i need to remove the top cover and then the backcover so i made some changes.

    First i measure the piece that has to go.

    [​IMG]

    The some cutting and finishing.

    [​IMG]

    Test fitting and now i only have to remove the top to get acces to the back section.

    [​IMG]

    Then it was time to make the connections i need for the keyboard,mouse and psu.I had some things laying around and they were perfect for this project.

    [​IMG]

    Drilled some holes and did some sanding and used M3 thread for mounting.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then i cutt 2 pieces of aluminium and drilled some holes and tapped M3 thread in them.

    [​IMG]

    Time to fitt.

    [​IMG]

    I still need a few more connections but i first have to place a order to get them.

    I bought black cable and black connectors and im already making custom cables.Im not going to use sleeve and leave the cables the way they look now.

    Update 24.

    The last couple of weeks i was drilling holes and sanding a lot of parts.So not much material to do an update but still it was a lot of work

    Here is one of the things i did.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Everything is mounted now and the only thing i need to mount is the top.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Last saturday i made the psu cover.

    First i bend the piece then weld it en at last some finishing.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then i drilled the holes in the frame and tapped them with m4 thread.

    [​IMG]

    The psu cover mounted on the frame and the psu mounted on the cover.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Some jigsaw action.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Test fit.

    [​IMG]

    Then i draw a grill and cut it with the lasercutter.

    [​IMG]

    Drilled the mounting holes in the cover and tapped them with m3 thread and after that i mounted the grill.This is how it looks at this point.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    More to come.

    Well, I'm definitely not hating this. In fact, I want to sleep with that table top. How much for an hour? ;)

    Concerning your Aquaero 5.... you put it inside the table. Why? Do you plan to only remote control it, or control it only from Aquasuite?
