The Mahogany Desk, an all custom, watercooled, dream machine

I wanted to create my dream battlestation. Everything is bespoke here except for the actual PC hardware. The whole table with all its wood, metal frame, hinges, dual loop reservoir it's all purpose built for just this very build. I was influenced by the speedboats in Lake Geneva and Garda and I wanted to create a timeless piece where the components could be swapped out but the build was made to last decades. Hence this slightly overbuilt monster was created.

The wood is stained and varnished birch on the outside. Shaped from a single block. On the inside you will find a boat-deck style, Teak and Ash finish.

The metal is all bespoke to this, including the legs, custom monitor stand etc. The hinges took the most time to get right. All the metal has been nickelplated and chromed.

Some neat feutures:

Key ignition and shutoff
Custom CNC milled reservoir
Custom Scissor Hinges
8 liters of water cooling on 2 separate loops






Cooling
2xMonstah 560 rads, 1x alphacool 360 ut 60 rad.
Custom Singularity Computers Dual loop reservoir
dual M7 pumps
Fittings from EK with a few ones from bitspower
