I saw an Arts and Crafts lamp on here last week and just had to build a computer case in that style.
I had been looking and looking for just such a project and it worked out just right.
I used some pictures of Timber4fun wonderful lamp. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/93681
I used 7 oak drawer fronts I had scrounged up to make the majority of the build.
I’m an old time cabinet builder so in most of my builds I use dowels to keep every thing lined up for gluing.
I was a bad boy I got out in the shop and had the front all glued up before I started taking pictures.
The computer sucks it’s cooling air from under the cabinet and also has room in the back of the power supply to suck air from under the mother board to help keep it cool.
I’m using the stock cpu fan but may put a taller Cool Masters cooler on with blue lite fans later on to get the lamp effect.
Also thinking about putting stained glass in the windows, we’ll see.
I blogged it here. http://lumberjocks.com/htl/blog/57626
I’ll put a link to Photo Bucket for more pictures in story form .
This case is half the size of any of my other cases.
Thanks for viewing and would love any in put please.
