Hi there:)

I'm quite new to this forum, but since they liked my build at some Dutch hardware sites, i wanted to post it here too.

My other build came to an end and didn't know what to improve, but my old desk almost fell apart.

Really want to thank Pascal for his pc-in-a-desk idea. After seeing it I couldn't even sleep that night :)

I started sketching it with Google Sketchup

After 9 hours of non-stop drawing it finally had some shape.
