Wooden Wonder - slow build.

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Titled slow build because it will probably take me longer than my other current build and rightly so. I was doing up the frame for it today and took pics so I guess I may as well start the work log for it.

I loled, cause I haven't even said whats happening to it
Had a talk to my dad today, he lives about 2hours drive and only talk to him a handful of times each year. But he basically yelled at me and told me not to spend anymore money until I go on a holiday up to see him. Says hes got a bunch of equipment I can have. Bench saws, dremel, router, everything I could want. So he told me to write a list of everything I think I need and he'd see what he can do. Makes my g/f happier, no more spending money on tools

I am jealous. I do need some more and newer equipment as well. And it doesn't matter whats happening to it, because I am sure it will be great. I have an appreciation for wood builds. My project quad cube is a wood case build, and I also designed and built myself a liquor cabinet recently.

Well, these pine boards are cheap. $1.30 for 6.5' ft long. (2.5m) so I might get into some dovetailing. I didn't today because I have no fretsaw or chisels, both are overly expensive. The fretsaw at bunnings was around $45 (handheld not including the blades) and the Chisels, well a decent set was around $180, So I'll have to hit the old man up for them.

Slight update, I had been posting in the general thread asking which would be better to fit the cross rails on the inside frame chaises or outside. I concluded I would either need to do the outside, or amend the frame and add more room for WC support Bolt on top RAD.

The URL is here, a number of pics was also posted there:

So looking at the case I put it together wrong from when I originally designed it. Currently it's 250mm wide, 510mm high. The width beams were supposed to be the entire width, which would have given me 210mm width, 550mm height just on the front and back support. So if I add the length beams to the under and top sides which are 595x20x40mm long that will give me a height of 550mm (would have been 590mm if I didn't stuff up). Which is what you can see in the above image. That should be just enough from mobo, PSU and RAD with fans.

Or I can place the cross beams on the inside or using the castings, flush with bottom and top. Then support some RAD room on top.
I'm still very undecided. I may just redo the frame and practice some dovetailing, so I get my dimensions correct.

These are some chairs I found on the side of the road waiting for rubbish collection. Suede cushions and nice pine timber.


Plenty of room for Cages:




Acrylic PCI Cover Mods.... Just for giggles. Not sure if they will go in this case or another.

Pine! Soft and easy to mess it up. But easy to work with and you cant beat the price can you?
