    Your comment is completely valid, the light distraction was considered and is also the reason why the components are located off center, quite a lot to the right. In case this wouldnt be enough, there is a remote control for color, intensity and generally the state of the illumination. So if it would bother me, I would just turn it down or off.

    Thanks! Even more exciting if you constructed it yourself as part of the project also - certainly looking forward to seeing this progressing :)

    You can take a look at some screen/lamp holder 3D models. ;)

    That is amazing! I love functional designs.

    I am curious to know what tools you use for bending. Could we get some shots of your workshop?

    Your Screen mount is amazing too. It reminds me of how some desk lamps are deigned.

    I usually don't really pay attention to desk builds as so many of them are just another "stuff a PC in a desk" projects, but this has got some interesting ideas. Your metalwork looks great. The lifting mechanism is really ingenious.

    wow. I was happy when it only took me an hour to build my daughter's flat packed swing (only swore 52 times and threatened the screw driver a couple hundred of times). I now want to cry.
    looks amazing mate!

    Sorry for the delay. I use professional bending machine, it was old and cheap, but works perfectly especially with thin AL or steel. 3mm AL requires a lot of force.
