This is going to be a Mini ITX HTPC for my girlfriend. Primary use will be streaming netflix.
I’ll be using plywood for the main structure and then trying my hand at veneer. The front will be solid curly maple.
Cutting the first piece. All the rest of the plywood pieces are done the same way, so I haven’t included them here.
From the scrap that was left from cutting the top, bottom, and back, I had enough to make the two sides. It was too wide though, so I had to remove about half an inch of material. I decided to do it with my hand plane. It took some time, and made a lot of shavings…
Managed to hit my line though (top one, not bottom)
I also cut the front piece of curly maple, and this is a picture of it all clamped together. It’s just a dry fit, nothing is being glued here yet.
I then started gluing up the bottom and sides
A few more “dry fits” after the sides have been glued on. Front and top are not glued. I also cut the vent holes in the top.
I got the first vent frame pieces cut, and the back piece as well.
More to come when I find time to keep working. I’ll be moving at the end of the week, so it’s kind of been put on hold until after I get moved in.
Any and all comments and/or suggestions welcome :-)
