Project Oak

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I've always enjoyed scouring the forums looking at what other have designed and built. But it wasn't till recently i saw the L3p D3sk (Amazing btw) and it really motivated me to build my first case from scratch.

I've gotten a pretty good chunk of the desk built already but haven't had time to start up a worklog since I've been busy moving into my new house.

I'm settled now so its time to get at it.

Here was the current state as of yesterday morning

I drilled the hole in the back plate for the acrylic tube i will use to route my wires

After cutting it to length i used some frosting spay paint

Skipped a couple steps but here is the tube mounted and under-lit

And Finally with the back panel in place and all the cables run

Next up on the agenda is to completely rebuild the internals. Still rocking the comp i built in 07 so I'm way past due for an upgrade.
