    I i'm i the process of upgrading my work area and i needed a desk to go with my new gaming chair.the desk will have a built in pc and a file server to send files to all of my machines and other pcs on my network.i did not want to spend a ton on the build so i will be making the entire project from spare parts and wood left over from other builds.the desk needs to be self contained and mobile as my work area is small.so far i have the frame built and i will be spending the day mapping out the electronics.here is a few shots of the build so far.

    Looks pretty good so far. I must admit though, I've always been against PC-Desk builds because the desk ends up so thick compared to a normal one. Still, neat project, and looks well put together.

    well i started work on the front panel of the desk today.i cut the holes for the fan controller and media hub display and the dvd drive.i still have to cut ports for the usb and mic and headphone jacks.the power and reset buttons are led backlit and will act as both buttons and power led and hdd led.check the video for the details and please subscribe to the channel for updates.

    So I got a lot done today.the desk is wrapped in carbon fiber and I installed RGB LEDs to the legs. Next I will put on all the logos and graphics. Then make the covers for the front of the legs out of plexi glass.
