Will the top be plexiglass or real glass ?
Not sure at this point I wanna use both as glass has a good strength to it aswell as a I nice finish but plexi is cheaper and more see through and would display the internals better.
plexi scratches easier, glass weighs more
you can get a low lead glass thats supper clear to look through, its used in fish tanks but, costs more
either way you go, good luck
Sorry I haven't had the chance to post lately ran into financial issues but hopefully I'm back on track. Desk is completely sanded down just needs a clean before first coat of primer. Also got some legs that fit well on the desk!
I would like to thank Aquatuning for being absolutely awesome and sending out a huge amount of stuff for me to use in the desk!
Pretty legit question imo,
I gotta say back in my day it was really tuff to get sponsors , you really had to have proven your self as a top modder.
But i'd imagine now all you have to do is contact them with the idea show some proof of concept and then promise to clutter up your work log with tons of useless pics of their products Always a trade off.
But it's good they do it , helps alot of modders.
Yes that's correct it comes down to social media presents aswell as to produce multiple work logs to prove your efforts. We run a Facebook page of 3000 Likes as well as a YouTube, Twitch and Twitter page. Without these sponsors building would be a lot more difficult.
A huge thankyou to Gigabyte Technology for sending out an z270 Aorus Gaming 5 Motherboard!
Looking interesting man. Subbing to see the progress!
OMG really? i like to encourage fellow modders but this is taking the piss......
Hey dude, looooooong time no see! Still modding out of the garage out there? Been to your place a few times many moons ago.
Not sure why I'm upsetting you with the choice of board I sent Drew but these are very capable , high end boards we just release .
The boards fantastic! and it's great that you get a plug for it...
and it's great to see you supporting the modding scene
but 2 plugs in one thread? and tagged on like it's some sort of update c'mon.
Sooo much plugging and sooooo little actual modding.
But i'll be the first one to post praise again with the next update.
Currently I'm waiting on an air compressor and some grills for the case that have been made. Everything that I can get done so far has been done.
Update was for sponsors there all apart of this and I'm going to be transparent with who I am working with on this build. E.g. logging the complete build with all the contents.
is that how i should read it ?
No more like this
Hope to see some updates soon.
If you a local sydney boy and need the use of a workshop full of tools including compressors shoot me a PM. I'd be more then happy to lend
the space and spare you some of my time.
i agree with your sentiment. it came across a bit harsh, but i know your heart is in the right spot
Sorry I have been AFK lately other things have come up, but I think I can get back on track once again!
Photos of the boxing of the component tray in the desk as well as some testing done with some LEDs!
Any critisim is welcome
maybe build a template/jig for all your little drill holes. the fact they're not all consistent drew my eye instantly.
maybe they won't be so noticeable with wires running through them.
