    Today i started with the foot for the desk.Im gonna use a frame with plastic feet and 2 mount plates for mounting the columns.On top of the frame there will be a cover.

    First i cutt the pieces im using for the frame.

    [​IMG]

    Then i drilled the holes for the M8 rivet nuts and put them in.

    [​IMG]

    These are the plastic feet im gonna use.

    [​IMG]

    Then i drilled the holes in the mounting plates for the columns.The holes are 12,5mm and thats the hole i need for a M10 stainless steel welding nut.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Welded the nuts.

    [​IMG]

    All parts are finisht so now its time to put all the pieces together.

    This weekend it was time to do some modding again.The mobo tray en the cover for the 4 casefans at the front were cut on the lasercutter.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then i bend the 2 pieces.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then it was time to make the standoffs for the mobo.For this i used 8mm stainless steel with M4 thread.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After that i drilled the holes for the mobo in the mobo tray and mounted the standoffs on the mobo tray and placed it inside the desk.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Time to mount the mobo on the tray.

    This weekend it was time to start working on the cover for the back side.For this i used 3mm aluminium.

    First i cut a piece of the right measurements and bend it.

    [​IMG]

    I want the cover to go with the design so i cut the pieces for the corners.

    [​IMG]

    Then i weld the pieces together and did some finishing.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then i made the side pieces for the cover with the holes in them for the 80mm casefans.I was so busy making them that i already finisht them and then i realised that i forgot to make some pictures.At that point i spotwelded all the pieces together.

    Spotwelded the side pieces on the cover and finisht welding them and some sanding ofcourse.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Time to fit the cover and this is how it looks.

    Some real nice metal work skills. Sexy welds are are something I never get tired of looking at.

    But seriously a less complex version of these things would sell and I'd buy one for sure.

    This weekend i made some progress again.First i made the cover for the desk feet.

    First i cut the cover.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then i bend the cover.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Because it was not possible to bend the whole cover i had to let to small pieces open.
    For this i cut 2 little pieces of metal and spotwelded them.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then i welded the cover and id some sanding.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The cover is finisht and this is how the cover looks.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then it was time to work on the oak top for the desk.

    The top.
