Project "Pitch Fork"

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
So after a late night last night working I came up with this idea for a HTPC, but not just any HTPC. My one will be able to play good old vinyl.

So the plans are done on paper for the minute because Im waiting for my laptop to run autocad. So once I get it I will have the plans up. This project will be keeping with the old record player style kinda. The body will be made from some of that pitch pine that I was talking about in another thread and the rest will be polished steel and copper.

The hardware for the HTPC is as follows: (exact models will come later)
Biostar AM3 Motherboard ASRock G31M/S S775
Phenom II X2 CPU (Need to get this yet) I am now looking for a used S775 CPU make me an offer
4GB RAM
Gigabyte GV-N210TC-512I GeForce 210
500watt OEM Cooler Master PSU

Updates to come soon....................

My first update on my first case mod on OCN, here goes,

So I went to the wood yard and picked up some 2x1s, 40' of them in fact. So I marked the angles and started cutting, now usually I would hire a chop saw for cutting wood but this was light wood, so the hand saw was okay.

Time to start fixing it together, aw crap I will need to add another layer of wood on top.

Lets counter-sink them screws.

Uprights are screwed in place, I had the 2x2 wood laying around so I decided to put it to good use.

Stupid dog is tired at this point after me chasing him around the garden to get my hat back.

Top part is on now.

One side put on now and its time for food. Ignore the crooked front upright, thats only temporary.
