Wood & plexy deskputer

After using my Waterworld for a few years it was about time to change a bit (the year was 2014). Desk builds just seemed too fun to pass and even though I had no tools, beside a hand saw a rasp and a dremel, I decided to give it a try with easy materials.

The goal was to get a deskputer that looked simple and modern but was also silent.

The first step was to do some drawings and when I felt ready ordered the plexy, some wood and took appart the old desk (and recycled what I could).
It took quite a few days of work but I think the result is worth it.

Excuse the potato quality of the pictures.
