Just need a bit of #8 fence wire and some baler twine and it will be perfect   :D

Yes, that's great work Ianab. I wonder why they don't use wood for case designs. Wouldn't it be cheaper and of course renewal? I've always wondered why they took away the paper grocery bag.  We've all been led astray by industry lobbyists. ::)

Thanks for the pic with the lights out Ian.  Didnt you also make another computer that looked like a small wood cube or was that someone else?  That was cool too.

Well, after 15 years the computer desk has got an update. It had been sorta forgotten, and just used as a regular desk, with monitors and the usual crap on top of it.  My dual Xeon workstation wasn't going to fit in there. Anyway we had to dismantle "Mission Control" to get new carpet laid, and Lil asked if it still worked. 
"Probably, but it's an old P4, probably running XP still, but I could rebuild it if you want use it"

"OK, but it needs some more Bling"

As all the parts were standard stuff, a better power supply, new(ish) system board / CPU / RAM, a new SSD all drop right in. Then add some more LEDs and a glow in the dark CPU cooler.  :)  Most of the parts are recycled from old business computers that I get for free. It owes me maybe, $100, mostly for  the Bling.  :D

The small black box at the rear of the desk is a 3D printed mount that holds what's usually front USB ports. So USB and headphone jacks will be easily accessible. Power button can mount there too.

Very cool!  No computer desk here.  Just a lap top used on, you guessed it, a lap!
