Scott's Computer Cabinet Project Design Phase Page

I needed a computer cabinet, and no one makes what I wanted. The only option was to build one myself.

This page documents the design phase of the project. After measuring my existing computers to determine what dimensions I needed and measuring the current furniture in the computer room, I made some rough sketches of what I was planning to build and then a more detailed drawing. I also made some drawings to determine how I would need to cut the wood I bought in order to produce the parts I needed.
