I hate noise… like really really hate it!
My PC is getting older, and the fans are really getting on my nerves.
I tried cleaning, greasing and even replacing them, but it only helps temporarily.
I figured, if I can’t remove the sound, I can bloody well contain it.
I’m fascinated with furniture that have functions. Things that can move, fold, transform or just DO something.
I love the Festool Domino joiner. A bit pricey, but anyone will agree that love have never been cheap.
Testing how many, and how thick the mahogany can be, to run smooth in the grooves.
Tip: rub a little candlewax in the grooves.
One of these days… I will connect my dust extractor to the thicknessplaner… maybe?... yeah, one day…
I fastened the strips to some thick rubbery floorunderlay.
Tip: Use washers on the screws, as the wearing and tearing will eventually pull the screws through the rubber.
The bottom of the cabinet had to be placed, so the roll front could pass snuggly underneath it.
The sidepanel can be lifted out, to gain access to the PC if you need to tinker with something.
A short video of the smooth action (My first ever video on youtube).
Wood species: Oak and Mahogany
Joinery: Sexy Domino’s
Finish: 2 layers of furniture-lacquer, and candlewax for the grooves.
Measurements: 60×60x30 cm
I went to purchase some 70mm mahogany deck planks at “Stark”, but they had discontinued the type, after someone bought their entire stock. The salesman said I could have the display model if I wanted. 150×120 cm for free. Yay :-D
My only concern is the risk of overheating, but I tackle that problem if it arises.
Hey, at least now Im shielding it from the direct heat coming from my radiator.
In Denmark we call this sort of door a “Jealousy door”, and it took some time finding the proper English word for it. “Roll front”. Are there any other names for them?
Hope someone gets a little inspiration from this
Have a great summer
