[Scratch Build] Media-End-Table

post #1 of 72
Thread Starter 
Welcome to my very first SCRATCH BUILD!
I hope I can produce a decent quality product as I have seen tons of insanely good works of art created by many more experienced builders, but it all takes practice and I feel that I can pull this one off.

My concept is a small end table made from 1/2" oak plywood that will be 24" wide x 18" deep x 24" tall (if I am remembering correctly) and it will contain 2 drawers and an open bottom cubby. The top surface will also have a plexi or real glass square to view inside.
I plan to try and build the end table without the use of any screws, instead I will use wood glue and dowel rods.
The top drawer will house the majority of the PC, but the PSU and optical drive will actually be hanging underneath the top drawer and extend into the space of the bottom drawer. The lower cubby will likely house my wireless aio printer.
To keep it clean and simple I am going for a white and black theme.


A bit of background:
I have had the idea for quite some time now, but I don't have a way to work on it at my current apartment.
I have spent a lot of time modeling it in Inventor and making changes and all of the real work I get done is when I visit my parents (most of my large tools are there plus the space to work).
It's going to be awhile before I visit them again so there is down time in between trips. I hope to get as much done as I can every time I visit, but not at the expense of poor craftsmanship.
With the down time I try to map out the little details and still have a few odds and ends to purchase. I am also considering trying to work on little pieces at my place and not make too much mess or noise, every bit should help.
*Edit: I now have some pieces at my apartment and am committed to work on them as much as possible so I can get this build done sooner*

This PC is more of a budget build that I put together a year ago when I had the initial design drawn up and hoped to be constructing this desk much sooner. Luckily the sacrificial case I bought has worked well to keep things running and usable all this time.
It is a low use secondary PC that currently gets used for Netflix/Hulu in my bedroom on random nights, but was also planned to be an extra mediocre gaming PC if I have anyone over that wants to mess around on something.
It has also been fun to tinker with Linux Mint for a short while as I have never tried a Linux OS before, but I haven't really put any time in learning how to use Linux so I have only scratched the surface there.
I installed the Windows 10 Technical Preview on a partition to see what it was like before launch and have since been running the now live Win10 Pro that it upgraded into and have been using that the majority of the time I boot it up.
Lastly, I was intrigued by the overclockability of a budget chip (G3258) and wanted to give that a try so I had to get the remaining components to allow me to test out the chip.
Unfortunately since it is a budget build, I had to go with a basic air cooler. I would like the aesthetics of an AIO and will hopefully swap one in later, but for now this will do.
I would really like to have tried out a true water cooled setup since I haven't had the luxury of one yet and they look awesome, but that certainly wouldn't have been cheap.
Maybe just a simple CPU loop can be put in some day, but then again my main gaming rig would likely be a better choice to spend any money on water cooling.
If you happen to come across a closeout deal of WC parts at insane discounts, let me know and maybe I will squeeze it into the build biggrin.gif


The Components:
CPU - Intel Pentium G3258
Mobo - Asus Z87 Gryphon with Thermal Armor Kit
Ram - 8GB HyperX Fury 1866 (White)
GPU - XFX R7 250X (received from an RMA of my old GTX260 that died)
PSU - Corsair CS450M
Cooler - Cooler Master Hyper T4
Wireless AC Card - TP-LINK Archer T9E AC1900
HDD - 150 GB 10k rpm WD VelociRaptor (from my very first PC)
SSD - 250 GB Samsung 840 EVO
Case - Custom Wooden End Table (with a mobo tray from a sacrificial case)
Intake Fans - 2x 140mm Phanteks PH-F140MP
LEDs - CableMod WideBeam LED Strips Thanks to their event on OCN and sponsorship of my build.
Custom Sleeved Extensions - CableMod ModMesh (Black and White)
Sleeved SATA Data Cables - CableMod ModMesh (Black and White)


Renderings of the End Table:
The following are from Autodesk Inventor, I haven't really used the realistic rendering side of it much so they images probably aren't the best, but they get the point of the design across.

Top Drawer:



Bottom Drawer:

Base Cabinet:

Assembly:




Final Comments
I think this will be a lot of fun and turn out to be a pretty slick and unique build. I welcome anyone to follow along with me and provide feedback, ask questions, or just enjoy the journey.
It'd be great to see that I am bringing some enjoyment to my followers and even better if I end up inspiring someone to give a custom build a try.
I hope to do a decent job with the build log itself as well and make it easy to follow and provide plenty of photos of the milestones, this part is also new to me so I may have to edit my posts a few times.
Lastly, as of now I don't have quite everything figured out yet or purchased (such as what specific power button I want to use and where to put it) so I may ask for some general thoughts on those things throughout the process.

Thanks for checking this out and I hope you enjoy!

**Edit: I welcome and thank the generosity of for sponsoring my build.**

Looks like it will work out nicely.

I'm not sure if the psu and hdd hanging from the top draw will work you won't be able to open the top draw without them hitting the front of the lower draw.

You might also want to think about the cables exiting from the rear io panel.
When you open the draw the cables will get pulled.
Some extension cables that are hidden behind the draw would work but will add some complexity.

I would go with a glass top, acrylic is cheaper but will get scratched easily.

Are you going to paint it white?

Wow this looks neat, it reminds me of the ikea server farm shelf mod.

I should be able to open both drawers at the same time if I need to open it that far, kind of like the last final assembly photo. The only time I would imagine opening it is for a quick cleaning. Also I could pull the glass insert out and go from the top down if I need to access something, but thanks for being sure I was aware of it.

I am not following the cables in the rear io panel issue. The only ones that I should have back there are keyboard, mouse, and monitor cables which should have more then enough slack for an opened drawer (PSU power too, but thats not the io panel). Everything else like SATA cables and what not will all be internally fed.

I agree glass is likely the smart way to go and honestly probably not that much more expensive. I used acrylic on an old bar shelf I made (I will edit this and post a pic of it) which has held up just fine, but I also just have things resting on it so it doesn't exactly get a chance to scratch. Plus if I get a custom piece of glass I could have them put a nice bevel edge on it or something for a better look.

Yes, I plan to use a white enamel paint in some form of gloss finish (after a primer coat) and already have the drawer pulls purchased which are similar to my design, a simple black metal circle.
The cheap sacrificial case I purchased to cut out the mobo tray I made sure had the interior in black metal as opposed to some cases with silver interiors so it will fit into the black and white theme well.

Thanks, ya someone mentioned the Ikea cabinets previously and that was the first time I had ever seen them, they do look pretty neat.
I unfortunately have never been to an Ikea store to see what all they have to offer, but I do see/hear of many OCN users that have utilized Ikea's products for various things especially table tops and legs for a quick and rather decent looking desk option.


*Edit: Below is some info and pics of the bar shelf I mentioned.* Click to see more! (Click to show)
I made this to be a floating bar shelf, but seeing as how I am currently in an apartment, I cant exactly secure it to the studs. Luckily I have a mantle above the fireplace that worked out nicely to rest it on.
It is painted in basically the same type of paint I plan to use for this end table.

I am sure just about everyone has seen the RGB LED strips by now and how they have patterns to change colors or can select a specific color etc so I wont post 20 pictures to prove that mine does this, I will just show the basic white and then a single color to get the idea across. There is also an up close photo to show the strip housed in the inner frame and under acrylic. Plus you can see my Christmas dogs protecting the shelf smile.gif
Now if only I could find someone with more expensive bottles of liquor that they are finished with to really make it look fancy, I cant justify spending $200+ on a bottle of Patron Gran Platinum or other things like that so I'd have to get lucky from someone else.

Finally able to post my first update for the project. thumbsupsmiley.png

Unfortunately it has been raining like crazy at my parents house, I think they forecasted almost a foot of rain over the weekend, the golf course near by is now a lake and I am sure every other low spot is under multiple feet of water.
This has caused me to try and work in the garage which isn't as ideal and is slowing me down a bit. I also lost a bit of time trying to setup my old belt sander that I got from my grandfather many years back, one piece is broken and I couldn't figure out how to get it off so it wouldn't rattle and move all over.
After too much wasted time trying different ways to remove it, I think the bolt is stripped for the part i need to remove, I just went with the simple fix of duct tapping it in place.
I also was unable to acquire some fresh sanding belts, the local Lowes was out of 80 grit that I wanted and even said its other 2 nearest locations were out as well.
It was raining too hard to travel another 20 minutes to a Home Depot and Walmart doesn't carry belts over 18 inches (I need 4x36).
Lowes did have 36 grit and maybe 120, which i didn't want either. I imagine 36 would just chew through everything very quickly and might be designed for stone or tile? I can't imaging needing to use 36 on wood...
120 was too fine, I have a handheld block and paper for the finer grits so I was stuck with my only piece of partially used 80 grit on the belt already.
I really need to get a random orbital sander or palm sander, but I am hoping to get a cordless one that matches my new tools that I will show in a moment, they don't make one yet though.
I also need some wood files and more long clamps to make things easier, I will try and remember those for next time.

Here is a quick photo I took of the belt sander:


As I briefly mentioned earlier, I got myself some fancy new tools for Christmas which will come in handy for this project.
I got the newest Milwaukee M18 Fuel Drill/Driver and Impact Driver combo kit along with an M18 Jig Saw, I am very happy with the quality of these and hope they last me for many many years.
This is where I was hoping a palm or random orbital sander will be made so it matches the battery line I just bought into otherwise I will likely find a corded one at some point.
Here is a photo I took of the drill and jig saw I was using:


So now onto the actual progress thus far.

I mentioned earlier that I already had most of the parts rough cut on a previous trip, you can see it wasn't the cleanest table saw work, but it got things down to a point that I can sand it to size.
I was using a neighbors basic table saw and a plywood blade to do this and didn't take any pictures back then, but here is a photo of the pile of rough pieces:


After using the jig saw for a few things and seeing how clean it cuts, I kind of wish I did all my initial cuts with it instead, but I also didn't know I was buying one back then and all my pieces are still usable.

For the rest of the day I worked on getting my lower drawer built, I thought it would be smart to start there since its the least significant component and if I had any mistakes or issues with the process, it'd be easier to remake.
I seemed to move at a somewhat slow and detailed pace with this, partially due to things mentioned earlier with weather and tools I had on hand, so I didn't get as far as I was hoping and can tell that this project will take me longer than I had originally estimated.
Hopefully I can work on it a bit every time I visit my parents and slowly knock it out, but I don't come out here too often since they are 6 hours away. I also won't be buying a house in the near future so bringing my tools to me isn't feasible yet.

Here are some photos I took of the drawer in progress. Sorry I didn't get any more or of additional stages, but I figured this would work for the start and I can also do more for other parts.

Bottom Drawer with sides attached and drying:


Bottom Drawer about to get the front put on, I somehow had the base flipped or something when measuring for the lower dowels so that's why there are 2 sets close to each other, I had to re-drill my holes like 1/2 inch over:


Front of Bottom Drawer attached and drying, you can see I didn't quite drill all my holes deep enough for the dowels, but I already put the wood glue in before test fitting so I had to go with it and will cut them flush later:


Another angle of the Bottom Drawer with the front attached, ignore the large bottom board, it is just my working surface across 2 saw horses and is not attached to the drawer:


I apologize for the random background items in the images, since I was forced to work in the garage, I didn't take the time to clear everything away perfectly for clean photos nor did I have a ton of space to move large objects out of my way.
Also some of these were done in lower lighting so the quality might not be the best they can be.

Hopefully you enjoyed my first update, I certainly had a good time working on all of this today even if the weather was trying to keep me away. It's been awhile since I've done any woodworking so it was a treat to get back into it.
Feel free to comment, ask questions, or give feedback on how I can improve my build log write up.

Looks great! Makes me kind of sad because my parents decided to go with a Fire TV Stick instead of my similar idea. Nevermind about me though. Good luck with your own project!

Thanks, maybe you will be able to still follow through with your build eventually though. Its fun enough to just to create something even if you don't have a specific need for it right away.

Thank you, I have been trying to think outside the box a bit on ways I can keep working on this where I live instead of only when I visit my parents for a few days maybe 2 or 3 times a year. At that rate it may take 2 years to finish!

My best idea so far has been to find a storage unit that I could rent for a few months and work on it there, but I don't really want to spend $35-$75 per month, plus most wont have electrical to let me plug in a belt sander.

I may see if I can work on a few small things in my apartment with the jig saw and then a metal file and sandpaper, but I don't a room full of sawdust in the air and I am on the second floor so I would have to catch all the debris if I try to work on the balcony.

I still have to get myself to pick out the last few parts too, like the power switch and led strip, I just keep putting those two off for now.
I have been working on my OC for the system at least, which isn't looking like the greatest chip, but at least it will be dialed in soon and thats been fun to tinker with.
