Hi everyone !!!
My name is Aldo, and live in the Netherlands. I'm going to build a PC-Desk in a Rural theme.
Our home has a rural apperance, and i've never seen a pc-desk to match that.
 
All the furniture has been hand made by me, so the next thing is a desk-pc.
Build from hardwood-plywood and scaffolding wood. With a finished glass top and milled edges.
I've done some pc building in the past, some light modding, but never a build like this.
Fortunally i am experienced in woodworking, metalworking and electronics, so it won't be a big problem i think.
I've made a quick sketch on the project, see below.
 

 
I shall update reguarly on this product.
 
Thank you for visiting this thread !!

    Indeed, i also never seen this theme before too.
    So that's the challange.
    I made all the garden "builds ?" and home furniture, including kitchen, from scratch. So this wil be going ok i think.
    "If you can't buy it, make it yourself" is my kinda thing.
     
    I'll post some pics soon from the stuff i made earlier last year.
     

     
    This is the theme i'm aiming for. With the same kind of appearance.

    Nice to see someone from the Netherlands too
    At the moment i'm busy making the list for all the parts needed....and that's a lot
    Also we have to wait for the money to buy the stuff. That may take another week or so.
    The new desk chair has arrived a few days ago, and we are very happy with it.

     
    Here are some pictures of the furniture i've done last months.
    A "box" table.
     
    Before:

     
    After:

     
    And the hand-made kitchen :
     

     
      Countertop of Douglas-wood
     
     Finished kitchen.
     
    So people now have a idear of the things i like to do in my spare time
     
    This desk will be fully integrated in this theme. When the first parts will come in, i'll update the post.

    That looks like a fun project man, may be a lot of work but in the end all that hard work will be worth it!
     
    Hmm gotta love that typo AMD made here on the Ryzen 5 1600X Box's Barcode decal as the L3 Cache goes  xD

     
    Should be 16MB not 19MB xD

    yeah, i see. But that is Level 2 + Level 3 combined.
     
    That's  3 Mb for level 2 and 16 Mb for Level 3. Combined 19 MB.
     Don't know why they combine the two......

    Ah yeah you got point, maybe to attract more buyers?
    Dunno otherwise, might be some sort of marketing tactic.

    Ok, so a little update.
    Most stuff is inhouse, but the GTX 1070 SC2 ICX i bought, it hasn't been send yet. It takes ages for them to be available.
    I've started on the desk though, sawn all the wood to size, and test fitted some stuff. On the weekend i'll be putting the thing together and post some pics of the stuff that has arrived.
    There are a few things from ebay, but that always takes some time to arrive.
