    Mahogany Desk Pc build Art Deco inspired "dreambuild"

    Greetings,

    This build has been in the works for the past 3 years and is within months of finishing. It's been a lot of work and I sincerely hope you enjoy it.

    The idea was to make your workspace feel like sitting at a grand piano. I love old speedboats and the design of the first half of the 20th century in general. The design is heavily influenced from that era. Everything in this build is pretty much built from scratch. I've been blessed with having a building partner along the way who's helped me throughout the build, his name is Mikael, mine is Wilhelm.

    Special shoutouts to Daniel at Singularity Computers for his effort in making the reservoir according to my design and to ICEMODZ for giving a good deal on the cables.

    Here's a photo where it is at currently, below you will find the build from the very start and I hope enjoy this

    The wood was ordered like this. Huge chunks of birch. The will be shaped to be the outer panels of the chassi. It's a really dense wood and it's been dried for years properly before being used.
    Quite heavy actually. These 3 parts weigh about 50kgs or about 110 pounds

    So I contacted Singularity Computers and he luckily agreed to make my design of a dual loop reservoir come to life. The plan was something like this

    He made a video of it as well



    And on to the interior wood. Now this is actually a pretty long process. But to roughly summarize it:
    I had lying around some teak and mahogany plywood and it had been drying up since the mid 1990s so it was just too good to not use for this. I'm just in love with this stuff

    Trying to get some harmony with the design. Maybe you think that's jibberish but there's some thought put into this

    And the last cavity needed is for the USB, 6.3 mm audio and volume controls etc. Will be using a homemade potentiometer solution here and hiding the DAC/AMP inside the table

    Wasn't completely happy with the interior panels so I actually redid all of them with 8 layers of 2 component diamond mahogany varnish. It's resistant to heat and water so it will have a long life inside

    Had to make a solution for getting all of the pieces together so had some long screws that goes through the interior panel and the steel frame and end in the outer panel. These can't be seen unless you're actively looking for them

    Had to make custom hinges or we would never get the glass out easily. Will also install electric motors for this so you don't have to do anything else than push a button

    Might as well mention this is just prototyping. The actual hinges will be made out of 6mm steel

    My ODAC came home. I just love the sound of this thing. Paired up with my sennheiser hd 650s listening to Pink Floyd has never been this good What a beast this little thing is. Lathed a new volume button though since I prefer the feel of metal

    Got my CAD drawings watercut. Well they were supposed to be watercut but the machine was broken at the place so they plastmacut it. Also got my custom hinges watercut but you'll see those pictures later.

    Gonna be a riddiculus amount of filing and sanding before I can send these to get chromed but we'll get there, fingers crossed.

    Sry for the pictures but I cant place it inside yet but at least you get a feel for what I'm trying to achieve here

    These are the sides (port-side specifically)

    The motherboard tray is also in it's natural habitat now. We made a cable hiding tool behind the motherboard tray and had a panel lasercut to make it look nice. The 2 holes are for some temp-monitoring
