My System Specs

Default The Black Desk

Ok here we go again.

I started this one almost 2 months ago. Took as many pictures as I could so here we go.

The project is to have everything as integrated in to the desk as possible. Two systems, Water Cooling, Stereo, Center Speaker, and monitors.

Here is the desk after I was done the basic frame.







Ok the next group of pictures are just random snaps I have. Hope you can follow what I was doing.





























Ok now I have to skip ahead.
After almost 9 coats of paint and a lot of minor details worked on this is where I stand as of today.










Few more details you may be curious about. The desk top will be all glass that has been back painted black except for the areas covering the two systems and the stereo.

The Glass will be in 3 maybe 4 separate pieces, all edged with fancy aluminum J mold.

Hope you like it thus far.

Very nice job. You could definitely sell lots of those if you offered free shipping, lol.



Seriously though, nice work. How many hours do you figure and what did desk materials cost?

Just for kicks.... call up a moving company and see what they say about shipping it cross country..... :)

Looks great though!!! I've always been a fan of desks with stuff under the glass top, although it's normally a CRT you see under there.
