hey all. first off ill explain the plan.
create a case for a new computer out of a wooden chest.
the chest is big enough that I should be able to also store most of my computer components inside it (apart from screen) when travelling.
so the idea is of course creating a treasure chest, so here are some pics of the base chest that I will be modding.
(the chest is huge by the way)
components inside are old stuff for scale, mobo is an old MSI K9N SLI Platinum that burned out in case you were wondering (not that you would :P )
the idea is to build a mid range pc for storage and media playing for use as a media center.
so I'm early planning stages here but is there anything anyone here would suggest might be required (cooling/layout/computer components wise?)
or any features you think a newbie modder could pull off that you would like to see?
fake internal lid with gold and treasure over it hiding the real content of the chest.
re-surfacing the outside for a more distressed look
building a curved lid to replace the flat one
dividing internal compartment into 2, one side for computer, one for storage.
reworking the base to remove lip and replacing it with recessed wheels for ease of transport.
