Hello fellw carbonites.

So while my first project is on a stand still due to waiting for my parts for the gaming pc, I have in the mean time started with a second project. It's an unuasual project and was quite fun to start of with. I have gotten the idea to do an media center build, however the dfference here is I didn't want to use an existing tv stand for this. I wanted build it from scratch, stand and all. This project started in last bweek with planning to what I want to do. On the Friday it all started and over the weekend I have continued to build this. This hasn't been finished yet as I still need to do the top of the stand for the tv. Wood was cut with an jigsaw and everything has been done by hand. I had to use what I have. Please let me know what you think about it. All finishing work will be done to neaten it will be done when the top is on.

Cant believe no one has commented here yet 😲 such hard work deserves appreciation. Good job bud, nice and simple design yet effective. Goes to show what can be done if you put your mind to it 👍

Looking good bud, i would have gone the route of a seperate compartment for the psu, in doing so hiding a lot of those cables, but thats just my opinion, still really good work though ;)

Thanks man. The problem is the psu is specifically designed for the board so the 24pin is very short. It needs to be next to the board. Lol
