This was my first and most traditionally styled computer case. I was helping a friend build one out of copper pipe and decided I could do it better myself and a shoji case immediately came to mind. I used sitka spruce and mahogany for the case. The joints can all be taken apart and the side panel features a water color painting done by my sister

That’s how you turn an eyesore into art. Fantastic!

That is a Killer computer cabinet!!! Now the Electrical eng. in me has to caution you on on static electricity. Make sure you ground yourself to the computer’s chassis before doing any work.

What an excellent idea! I’ve been thinking about building a custom pair of speaker cases for quite some time now. Already did my vintage receiver case. Really quite interesting. Well done.

Very nice Nick. I especially like how playful the piece feels while all the while maintaining its formalness. You have given us a lot to look at.

Really beautiful Nick. I’m a sucker for Oriental influence and this piece just drew me in. You should try some other types of boxes sometime. I’d love seeing this motif in a jewelry or keepsake box, or a humidor. Great stuff Nick!
