Just realized that I hadn’t posted this one yet…
This is a small HTPC that I built for fun. I’m currently not even using it, it just sits on a shelf and looks cool lol. But it does work. The computer is an APC Neo-ITX board, that runs a custom Android operating system. Runs on just 5v of power.
For the design, I wanted to do something different; something I hadn’t seen before in a computer case. Came up with this, and just sort of ran with it.
The body is made from 1/8” plywood, and some 1/4” square dowel. The vertical support is a 1 3/8” Oak dowel, and the base is cherry. Body was then veneered with mahogany. It was finished with shellac wiped on, paste wax applied with #0000 steel wool, and buffed with a cotton rag.
It was done 100% with hand tools :-)
