Ideal, thanks for the tips.

Good luck with the build!

I don't want to cause any confusion, these sheets are not based on regular kitchen cake pans, its made from large bakery cake pan which looks like this (after cleaning with solvent and water jet). Once the parts are cut to smaller pieces i use table drill with some sort of a wire tool to remove the rest of the dirt and finally it is sanded with 100p, 200p paper or even more based on the piece.

Good tip is to use water while working with higher speed tools (like the wire "scraper") with aluminum, since it heats up and when it heats up it doesn't get cleaner, it rather sort of melts and the dirt goes into the material.

My technical English is not that great, hope you get what i mean biggrin.gif

Once you finnish this mod, Start making these desks. I would buy one..!
post #27 of 131
I had assumed that you had scrounged up a bunch of rusty Sheet Cake Pans (16" x 24" x 3")

Kinda like this, only old and gross looking.





Which is still very impressive on the creativity, the recycling, and the technical aspects.

This is not a mod, this a build biggrin.gif anyways, this would be too expensive to buy, since its hand made. I have in mind simpler design, that could be produced quite fast with professional toolset tho.

If you make it, people will buy it.

People buy lamborghinis just to look cool when driving around a city, even though they are incredibly expensive, inefficient, risky and just generally impractical street cars.

A well designed desk case is actually a very practical item, and even an elaborate hand made one will be comparatively dirt cheap.

Just thought I'd throw that out there. You could make a lot of money, make some people real happy, and perhaps even give Red Harbinger and Lian-Li some competition and thus force them (and anyone else who enters the market) to improve their designs or lower their prices!



Oh, and you could totally get these things machine fabricated if you have detailed schematics (which I believe you do) and put the project up on kickstarter. wink.gif

I will go a bit off topic, but I have to share my experience. I went to Intel Extreme Masters in Poland as "press" to cover news in hardware and progaming for online magazine. I have to say, that I am shocked how many people come to these events. I mean I han an Press pass, so i can come in and out pretty much any time i want, so i came before openning hours. I went in, the the Olympic stadium was already half full - people wanted to get good seats so much, they bought an early acces for quite a lot of money. But it was dozents or hudrets of people but literally thousands. Here are some off topic pictures tongue.gif


















Anyways I dont want to be completely off the track here, so for those interested only in the build smile.gif here you go (you can try to guess what it is)
