Timber4fun here on LumberJocks has built a beautiful Arts & Crafts era lamp that I just fell in love with.
So not to copy but try something a little different I will use his style but put a computer in it.
I scrounged 6 oak drawer fronts 6”x14”and this will be the main building blocks for this build.
Just to wet your apatite here’s where I’m at right now with one of Timber4funs pictures that I went by.
I had been thinking about this project for a couple a days and went in the shop to just play around with some shapes for the legs.
Timber4fun put just the tiniest bet of curve in the legs, I almost missed it.
I just happened to put a ruler up to it and found that the bottom is like 2” and the top is 1 3/4 with the slightest of a curve on the out side edge.
My project is for a computer with just the minimal of computer parts in it, mother board, ssd, and power supply.
A remote power switch hot swap hard drive bay and dvd will be put in another incloser at a later date.
Trying to keep it as small as possible.
This is a full computer not one of those lap top minis.
Now when I give any measurements it’s from a blown up picture of his build so any measurements are surely different.
I got carried away and had the front glued up before I took any pictures.
I hate when I do this cause I should do a lot more sanding of parts.
After I started taking pictures I got to sanding like a good wood worker. LOL
I’m an old time cabinet maker so use dowels for most of my work.
Here’s a shot so you get an idea of the computer lay out.
Now I’m at the point where I need to start figuring out how I want the shelves for the mother board and power supply.
I thought about using 1/4” plastic or glue up wood slats but in the end I uses some extruded H plastic that I found to make some brackets.
I screwed the bracket to the power supply and then to the mother board.
Still need to make a top.
Have to come up with a face frame for the back to close it in.
Here’s where it will go when it’s done.
Thanks for viewing.
