    [Project] L3p D3sk (Check the 2013 Update!)

    ---> 2013 Update! <---


    Hi there:)

    I'm quite new to this forum, but since they liked my build at some Dutch hardware sites, i wanted to post it here too.

    My other build came to an end and didn't know what to improve, but my old desk almost fell apart.

    [​IMG]

    Really want to thank Pascal for his pc-in-a-desk idea. After seeing it I couldn't even sleep that night :)

    I started sketching it with Google Sketchup
    After 9 hours of non-stop drawing it finally had some shape.

    This is because i forgot i needed to rotate it when the flow comes from the other side compared to my other build.

    [​IMG]

    And how it looks now :)


    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]

    I don't think I could even design this let alone build it!

    Very nice work man; it's awesome to see people put love into things they do. And then share it with lots of pictures :)

    Why don't you live in the USA or Canada? I would have stolen you L3pdesk :) or at least asked you to make me one at a fair price...

    How many hours did it take to build the desk itself? and how much cost in material?
