Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone,

 

 

I'm new to the forum but have really enjoyed all the other people and amazing build.

I own my PPG (PindaPowerGamin) Corner Desk mod and I like to share it with you.

 

 

It begin with all the (extra) stuff form all the hobby projects. The desk was to small and room expansion is not that easy :):). So when it begin to be a but pain problem, I decide to make my first modding build.

 

After looking at other mods, I found that the "desk mod" are the most beautiful and practical. So it became my goal to build a desk that fit in my room. With some online idea's, is came-up and designed a desk that would be housing two computer in somewhat limited place. With the move of the computers, I would create more working space and many future projects.

 

No time for waiting, let's check out the progress. :):)

Looking good. Good use of the available space. I look forward to more pics and the build log. In your drawing it says that the material is SS, is it really that? Also... damn it seems to be heavy

SS was the plan but you will see in build log, that I change it to aluminum. In the end it's all good

I now that I here not stuff to make most off the parts. So with some consultations off friends, I found a company that could make all the aluminum parts. The down side was that there machines can't make the part in my dimensions. So they helped my to change the plans a little bit.

One off the changes was that the separate parts that are 'glued' at the bottom. The rest will stand in right position by small block on the upper-plate.

The components are in, YES. Now everything is in, I'm going to make holes. So I can test if everything fits, to be anodized and put together.

 

The stuff are in:

I received all the part back in one nice black color. It’s looking beautiful.

 

 

As you can see in the photos, I didn’t make my own desk-legs. For the chassis I wanted to use my old office, but I didn’t know what I would find beautiful.

Beside the legs, they’re going to be a glass plate. The choice was to place it on or under the desk. These picture are to show my testing method :):):)26277955761_2f307fe115_b.jpg

The choice has been made to get a big glass plate on top of the desk, rather than under the desk. So I'm going to arrange/buy the glass plate and continue the assembly to complete the desk.

It is now visible how the project is getting its final shapes. Meanwhile I made same holes in the bottom plate for the desk, to attachment the legs.

The legs have been shortened, sanded and painted black. Its looking a lot better.

Now getting the hardware to fit in, cutting the tubes and getting to continue on the other side. After that is the leak test.

After some time I decided that I didn’t like the screws/bolts, so I colored it black. IT’S LOOKING SO NICE. See if you can find the screws/bolts :)
