Finished Desk V3 - Decided to move the screens back down on the right to make it a sitting desk again. The top shelf is now mostly storage and another screen for a second computer build into the most left-hand cube.
Finished Desk V2 - RGBify the room! Also for this iteration it became a standing desk. IMO terrible idea unless its your work desk. Got tired of coming home to it.
Finished Desk V1 - I started by having the panels on the left split for aesthetic reasons but it ended up being dumb and just overall annoying.
Build Log 1 - Just put the finishing coats on the desktop, waiting for it to dry!
Build Log 2 - Measuring thing! Trying to fit everything in the box and make it all work.
Build Log 3 - Thank god! Everything fits!
Build Log 4 - Thank god even more! ITS ALIVE!
Old Desk Setup - Yikes, what a mess. On the screen you can see my new setup taking shape! Got sick of the glass desktop, wanted something less fragile, y'know?
Old Desktop Dismantling - Retiring the old desktop for good. Rest in pieces you magnificent orange disaster.
What a catastrophe this build has been for my wallet, hence the name. It started with a regular tower PC and then morphed into wanting a new desk but not having anywhere to put the PC so I decided to build it into my desk and make it the centrepiece. I used a bunch of IKEA boxes to make the supports for my desk so I took one of them and cut holes in it until everything fit in. For the box I made my computer in I made a custom front panel with a glass window with a LIFX RGB light strip around it allowing me to colour it any way I like. I had to float the GPU above the motherboard otherwise there wouldn't have been room. Fun stuff!
