    First mod: The Hardwood Dominator

    Hi everyone. I just built my first custom computer. I am very happy with how it came out. Let me know what you think.


    Though you can't see it in these pics, it also has a sound activated lighting sytem which looks awesome.

    The drawer is also lighted when opened so you can see the contents of it easier at night.

    I welcome all questions and comments.


    ps. the letters BVA on the side of it are my initials.

    Awesome stuff! did you start with a prebuilt unit, or did you fabricate the whole cabinet from scratch?

    I started it from scratch. I took some random pictures during the making of it and posted them at the link below.

    There is also a video of the lights on that page, not the best quality video but it works.

    Believe it or

    I made this using a jigsaw and a little electric hand sander and a drill. Obviously I also used a hammer and screw driver and tape measure too, but that's it. If I had better tools it would have taken a lot less time.

    I just drew some pictures of how I wanted it to look and the layout of all the internal parts and just went from there. One thing led to another and this was the result.

    I also entered it into the mod shop battles, you can get more pictures and a lot more info about it there and possible give props if you'd like.
