Honestly these things are more of a DIY thing than a find online and order kind of novelty.

It's not too hard nor expensive to build as long as you do not lack basic math skills and common sense.


You'll need: probably 500 or so of money.
Jigsaw and grinder (jigsaw or table saw for cutting the metal, grinder for "smoothing" it out. You can use a grinder to cut as well)
depending on if you're welding: a welder lol...or rivets if you're riveting.
sharpie, level, LONG ruler or something you can make a straight line with.

step one: Download Google Sketchup, create your design. Does not have to be "Drawn to scale", but rough idea.
step two: draw out each "section" on paper, such as the bottom section, the area fans may go, as well as hard drives, dvd/bluray drives. the section where say your liquid cooling components go as well as power supplies.
step three: decide how you will run your cables and where to mount things (as well as how) such as USB, Power/Reset, Motherboard and drive bays.
step four: create: find your local hardware store (home depot for some things, I found a metal shop for another for cheap hole-sale aluminum).
step five: decide what you will create it out of. i would chose aluminum and instead of welding, i had used rivets to hold mine together.
step six: create "frame". I did this backwards, I created piece by piece after realizing it would be easier to create the "frame" first. Essentially, make the "desk" and the "box" first and work within it for the divided points. DO NOT place together permanently, only temp so you can change things as you go along.
step seven: use common sense and math, create your design slowly, TAKE YOUR TIME, especially if you're not savvy with creating things.
step eight: the rest is all up to how you design it. I designed mine very, very odd lol. I'm still working on it, but I have yet to finish it (waiting for haswell so I'm selling my current setup for this new case)

Any questions? Lol I'm sure there will be a lot and I cannot answer most of them because I also am still in the process of figuring this out lol.
I do know one person who has successfully completed one I could refer you to, though.

There are 50 Limited edition US desks for sale with some bonus perks. Around $2k for shipping pre-ordering started last Wednesday and I think there are 30 left. Got mine ordered!
