Project Forge

Six months from planning to build completion, this has got to be the hardest and most time consuming build I've ever done. I've sweat, cried, bled, and hurt myself for this build, and I'm very proud of how it came out.

This is mostly my way of keeping busy during the pandemic the past year as well. Most of my free time went into this over-glorified gaming machine.

With this build, I've learned how to deal with copper tubing, how to use new power tools I've never tried before, and have built a collection of power tools for my household as well. I learned how to effectively plan a project too, learning to stagger purchases and to buy the parts as I work on the project. The project really pushed my imagination, creativity, and resourcefulness to the limit.

With this build, I finally hit one of my bucket list goals of hitting a Timespy score that's better than 99% of similar spec'd builds.

This is a physical embodiment of my passion for computers, my interest in tinkering, and my drive to learn new skills in achieving goals.
