Hello everyone,

I'm new to the forum but have really enjoyed all the other people and amazing build.
I own my PPG (PindaPowerGamin) Corner Desk mod and I like to share it with you.

It begin with all the (extra) stuff form all the hobby projects. The desk was to small and room expansion is not that easy :happy9:. So when it begin to be a but pain problem, I decide to make my first modding build.
 
After looking at other mods, I found that the "desk mod" are the most beautiful and practical. So it became my goal to build a desk that fit in my room. With some online idea's, is came-up and designed a desk that would be housing two computer in somewhat limited place. With the move of the computers, I would create more working space and many future projects.
 
No time for waiting, let's check out the progress. :happy1:  :happy1:

First Day

I now that I here not stuff to make most off the parts. So with some consultations off friends, I found a company that could make all the aluminum parts. The down side was that there machines can't make the part in my dimensions. So they helped my to change the plans a little bit.

One off the changes was that the separate parts that are 'glued' at the bottom. The rest will stand in right position by small block on the upper-plate.

The components are in, YES. Now everything is in, I'm going to make holes. So I can test if everything fits, to be anodized and put together.

I received all the part back in one nice black color. It’s looking beautiful.

As you can see in the photos, I didn’t make my own desk-legs. For the chassis I wanted to use my old office, but I didn’t know what I would find beautiful.

Beside the legs, they’re going to be a glass plate. The choice was to place it on or under the desk. These picture are to show my testing method :happy3: :happy3: :happy3:

The choice has been made to get a big glass plate on top of the desk, rather than under the desk. So I'm going to arrange/buy the glass plate and continue the assembly to complete the desk.

It is now visible how the project is getting its final shapes. Meanwhile I made same holes in the bottom plate for the desk, to attachment the legs.

The legs have been shortened, sanded and painted black. Its looking a lot better.

Now getting the hardware to fit in, cutting the tubes and getting to continue on the other side. After that is the leak test.

After some time I decided that I didn’t like the screws/bolts, so I colored it black. IT’S LOOKING SO NICE. See if you can find the screws/bolts :)
