    Yeah good point. Most will never see the wires coming out of the back!
    That brings me to the question just how are you planing to wire it all up? where are your wires going to come out? How will you rout them in the box? I like the build. I just want to see more and hear more.

    Cable routing will be done once I get all my parts but I have plans for drilling some hole in the shelves to help with that!
    This is a WIP and is far from finished but I'm confident that it will look nice once all the saw dust settles.
    trickson and Norton say thanks.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    You can paint if if you want. Just go to walmart and get some interior latex and your good to go. They can custom mix you any color you want. This is a neat concept. Great job so far.

    I think you have come up with a great idea jbunch07. Also I think Trickson may steal the ideal so get a patent quick. I even think he sublimely trying to get you to paint it pink. He's using you for his R&D.

    And the PSU support.

    I had to screw on an addition bracket because the PSU would slide around.
    Now the PSU stays put :)

    I may have a bolt on support bracket to hold a PSU from the outside here somewhere. It's yours if you want it.

    Will check my parts box to locate if you're interested:cool:

    Thanks but that won't be necessary. This should work just fine!

    Another Update today! Got holes drilled for my intake fans and optical drive bay.

    All ruff edges from cutting will be sanded so don't worry about those.

    This is a really neat project and it seems to be coming along nicely. Sub'd

    Oh, btw, I think I have this same precision driver kit as in the pic:

    Made by Husky and has a flexible extension, right?
