Hi all ,

My name is Pascal and im from the Netherlands and im a welder/metalworker for 22 years now.

Many woman dont like a pc in the livingroom so i was thinking about a good solution to make a desktop that looks like it belongs in a livingroom.I came up with the idea to make a desk.After using the version 1 there were some things to improve so i decided to make a second version of my desk.This is the first time that i made a build log.

Here some pictures of version 1 it was finisht 18-06-2010

Today i finisht the window section.

The edge cut from 3mm stainless steel for the attachment of the glass.

glas2.jpg

The glass is 6mm thick so I cut strips of 6mm thick and put the edge on it.

glas3.jpg

I then welded the edge with welds of about 5mm and then it was time for coffee.

Everything ready to fit.

Excellent work man, but tell me; how did you calculate what size of those pneumatic cilinders to hold up the lid ?

Love that lasercutter :)

Thanks FrenkieNL.Well the window and the lid weigh 10kg so i bought gas springs that can handle 10kg and it works like a charm.
