Ultimate Gaming Coffee Table
After giving it some thought I've decided to make this my new case. The top will be cut out around the gold inlay and replaced with a 1/4" clear acrylic sheet alloying the mobo and whatever parts I want to be seen. The bottom base will be approx. 2" off the ground and attached to all 4 legs of the table. Haven't decided yet but will probably use wood for the base & half way up and 2 to side panels then acrylic on the 2 shorter ends (may even use mirror with some funky lights!...lol. The mobo tray will be in a slide out drawer or shelf for easy access while PSU, pump(s), rad(s) and hdd's will all be hidden. Holes and cutouts will be used to mount fans, dvd drives, power switch etc. I'm just doing a cardboard mock up for mearsuments and fit purposes, I hope to pick up materials by the weekend and go from there. More pics as I progress. :thumb:
Didn't you get anything else to do... You know you could give that coffee table to do the Migg's Charity.. we need one :P
Good Luck on the mod, sounds promising..
Miggs?..trust me when I tell you, the pics make it look alot better then it really is..lol...I think I got it at the Brick 10 yrs ago for $58 in the "floor models" section...lol
I was supposed to have something else to do but due to health reasons it had to be postphoned and I need something to do before I go stir crazy! :shok::ph34r::doh: :haha:
that table brought back memories :) years ago in alberta, I used to pick them up from back alleys when furnishing a bach apt LoL. THey were good welfare tables to :) Tough, easy to clean beer from
If you do it up right it'll still be a good place for coffee and spirits.
Should be interesting.
Now if it were me... I'd cut out the center section, around the gold trim, sink in a piece of glass, then underneath use half height hardware, maybe WCing and a little lighting, run the cables down the legs to keep them hidden, and you'd have a spiffy HTPC. Well, original anyway.
Good luck with your project.
NM, shoulda read the original post more closely to see that you already mentioned most of that.:doh:[/edit]
lol we have the exact same tables... lol, and yours are in much better condition
