Description

Okay, I didn't have any say in what parts were used... but the case is my finest piece of work. I sat with the client in her absolutely exquisite office and she wanted a computer that looked better than anything else she had. It wasn't going to be an easy task, so I decided it was right up my alley.

I selected Amboyna Burl, used in Rolls Royce and Bugatti automobiles. But I wanted the light to dazzle; and so I decided to encapsulate black transparent class crystals in epoxy, seamlessly integrated into the wood. The base is polished aluminum, designed to look like a mermaid's tail. The rising part of the base to hold a lovely feminine shape. After all, this is a desk for a true lady.

The USB ports were cut into the wood and I designed a lovely place to cover everything; made from Stainless steel and gold plated to match her existing furniture. One thing I regret was using the polished aluminum. Looking back, I should have used rose-gold colored brass for the base. Oh well, someone else is going to want another one.

This desk took me almost three months to make. I had to make molds, router guides, and pour numerous layers of epoxy (which each take 24 hours to dry). I hope you like the results! Here's a video of the desk and making it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOMyIuMyC_c

This build is the only one I've seen so far where Trident-Z Royal ram would actually match the rest of the build.

+1 Amazing

Yeah I keep seeing that RAM in tech youtuber videos and it's like... who thought that was a good idea? I don't see a trend of people putting rhinestones and gold inside their PC... seemed like a bit of a shot in the dark by marketing or something. Even if the rest of your build matched it, might be a bit of an eyesore.

What. The. Heck.

This is pure madness. The dedication alone should be applauded. Wow. What an epic undertaking.

This is beyond beyond beyond, I mean, the wood alone... Congrats on this huge undertaking.

I totally agree about the rose-gold base to help tie everything together.

Is that office it's final resting place? That's my only sticking point: I'm so confused about how it is supposed to exist in tandem with everything else in that room.

You don't need a display when the case display looks that good. Great minds think alike :)

The concept, the craftsmanship of this case is beyond a level that language cannot convey. This is pure genius! However, the desk colors with the RGB combination are hideous (to me). I don't think RGB matches this piece of art. I am sure if that person would have let you pick the computer parts, it would have looked much better and beyond this world. And yes, I agree with DRogGTX that this would be the only rare instance where the Trident-Z Royal would have worked perfectly.

Congratulations! Great/Amazing work!

Agreed. The desk is stunning... it's just a shame whoever was in charge of the build itself really had no idea what they were doing. I don't think I've ever seen such a case (no pun intended) of wasted opportunity. This had the potential to truly be one of the greatest desk builds ever... but the component selection and build scuppered that.

It's the greatest desk... the build itself is very poor and ill conceived. As he says though, not his choice. It's a real shame, as the craftsmanship is first class. It just deserved FAR better in respect to what went in it.

True, I was mainly talking about the desk. I never even looked at the build parts too much to be honest. The desk was just too captivating

I rarely like desk PC builds. This however is amazing. I go back and forth on RGB a lot. In general I think RGB should accent the build and not define it which can be a tricky balance. You my friend have hit that balance square on the head. Great Job!!!

I'm also curious what you did to spill proof it.

Appreciate you said you didn't have a choice regards components, but that is a shame and someone with more build design skill wasn't given the reigns. My mind is literally exploding at the lack of proper custom cables (not just extensions) on such an epic project as this! The PSU is right there front and center! WTF?!!?!

Also, PSU and fans could have all been tied together nicely if Thermaltake range had been used. To leave the GPU out the loop as well... why? Especially as it clearly isn't getting direct air flow. Some VERY odd decisions were made with this build.

It makes me cry a little inside knowing that whoever was in charge of the actual build wasn't as dedicated as you were to the desk (great job btw). Doesn't sound like money was any impedence either. Real shame.

I don't think "amazing" is enough to describe the loving energy you put into this project. I am into craft as well. Damn, I can appreciate this so much!

Brother, I rarely visit people's builds, but when I saw yours, I knew that I had to look and comment. Your work is absolutely amazing, and I'm pretty sure that everyone here is ready to place their orders to have you build them one as well! I don't work in a metal shop, nor do I know anyone that does, or people talented enough to do anything like this. I'm pretty sure 90% of the people on this site are in the same boat, so I think you just carved yourself a desk, and niche in the computer case market!

I'm sure your customer is very happy because it's not even my desk, and I'm super happy! Continue the great work and thank you very much for sharing on this site to inspire the rest of us to pursue great work this like
