I have built a few of these desks. And each time I have upgraded and learned from mistakes. This something I love doing. I love computers and I love wood working. I use to build houses and desks so I have learned a few things wink-v1.gif



I started out with 2 sheets of MDF board.

First, screwed top and mid section together to make sure the hole was the same size

Time to build the sides, backs, and fronts.

A digital picture frame was going to show desk name but decided not to install that there.

I lost many pictures due to HDD crashing. But built the box connected to top piece.

Cut 4 1/4 inch holes for 120mm fans.

That tan thing was a support in a kids play table i found.

cut it up to fit a 12 inch neon behind

Mounted the box/top to the bottom of the desk and realized what I did wrong

Im sorry again for the lack of pictures. here is the desk up and running and there is more to come.

Modded a sealed loop to cool it and got some new hardware. I have a few pictures of the desk as it sits right now.

This was one of the projects that I was looking forward to see the finished product. It came out really well man! The carbon fiber inside looks gorgeous! It's always fun to see something like this come out from scratch!  :D
