[Build log] Custom Desk PC/ PC in Desk (Building Stage) - Page 13

post #121 of 197
Cutting strips would work, But cutting them the exact correct size and straight will take much planning and care.
Foam would be fugly. Have you ever worked with wood paste? It's as hard as a rock when it dries! And it would have a different "texture" when you painted over it.

It's time to have a beer (or whatever vice you enjoy) and spend some time thinking........................your project will wait patiently for you to start again.

Obviously make sure it's compatible with your saw.
Don't think a rip fence is needed. TrYzRAID doesn't need to re-cut the long edges. Just take a tapered 1/16 or so off of all the ends. That would make the box true and square, although it may not be plumb.

Thant was exactly right. Ieft the workshop room, went for a long bike ride to think things over. I think I might be saved!
What I've done is unscrew everything and then aligned all panels to see what's taller than what.
I will then mount them on top of the base instead of to the side of the base (if that makes sense).
I've screwed on the front and back, things seems pretty much level. I'll try the same with the sides.
If this fails... I'm going to probably cry

Thank god!

Not what you would call perfect but at least it's leveled now (the top of the desk is kind of bent/ arched)
Still lots of sanding to do!
But.. this is the trade off...

This image was only applies to the left and right panel, the front and back are perfectly fine. Also the other sode panel(left) isn't as extreme as the right. By its an easy fix biggrin.gif

XD can't tell if there's sarcasm but I'm glad it turned out ok.
I'd probably say I'm 80% don e all that's left to do is: tidy up cables, cut maybe 1 more fan hole then give the table a face lift and then paint it!

These where some pics I was meant to upload a while ago

What would be better, spray paint or using normal paint?
