41  Computer Desk Mod in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by foldingj on: January 28, 2007 09:46:16 AM
I finally finished that computer desk mod that I had been working on. In an attempt to find yet more things to do with all those computer parts that I came upon, I decided to modify the computer desk cabinet that houses the computer. I used some of the face plates from those computers that were so graciously donated to me, and made my own fake computer server. I took one of the power supplies from said computers (took a while to find one that worked semi-properly) and wired it up to the desk. I installed some nice blue LED's behind the computer faces and purchased some blue cathode tube lights (the kind made for computer case mods) and wired those tubes under the desk, all powered by the power supply previously mentioned. During the day, it looks pretty good, but night time is when this project really shines. (no pun intended)  Once again, it's amazing what you can do with alot of imagination and a few spare / scrap parts. Feel free to check out my other posts to see what I did with some of the other computer parts as well as some other crafty items. Enjoy

42  Sentinel Ceiling Light (re-post) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by foldingj on: December 29, 2006 08:46:03 AM
The more I thought about it, the more I thought that this post belonged here. Sorry for the multiple posts.

During my idea surfing, I came across a person (on craftster) who made a ceiling light from old electrical components (junction boxes, flex conduit etc). To me, it looked like one of those sentinel robots from THE MATRIX movie series. I thought I could capitalize on that and make my own. (Hope the original creators don't mind). I used round junction boxes, flex conduit, paint, and a few spare parts I had laying around. My sentinel comes complete with eyes, claws, and a radar dish. Not sure how long the wife will let me keep this thing up. Mainly because it scares her every time she walks in the room. But I love it. Enjoy

Sorry, here you go. My unique storage solution. Again, old empty computer cases with plexiglass fronts and backs. Enjoy

45  Computer Case Storage Rack in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by foldingj on: December 21, 2006 08:07:29 PM
Recently I came across 9 free computers while on a hunt for computer parts for a custom made "computer parts wreath". Check out that post if you want. It turned out quite awesome. Anyway, I just couldn't bring myself to throw away 9 perfectly good "empty" computer cases. So I decided to make storage units out of them. I built a rack, bought some plexiglass to cover the front and back (to keep all the dust and dirt out and to allow me to see what was in the box before pulling it down from the rack), and mounted some handles on the front of each box. Now it looks like I have a computer server rack in my shop. What is so cool is that it looks like it just doesn't belong there at all. But the storage comes in very handy. Already I have it mostly filled with future crafty ideas. See, sometimes being a pack rat is good. Enjoy

47  Comics Window Shade (updated) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by foldingj on: December 03, 2006 07:46:34 PM
I absolutely hate mini blinds, so I replaced my blinds with simple pull down window shades. I saw a post on Pull-Down window shade art and I just had to try it out. For my window shade, I chose the greatest superhero of all time, Superman. I chose this picture because it is/was his greatest battle, the battle with Doomsday in Superman #75. Anyway, I still have to color it in, but I just had to go ahead and post it now. I am just to tickled with the way it has turned out. When I get it completely finished, I will update the original post and include pictures of the final product. Enjoy

50  Soda Can Wreath (complete w/ photos) in Winter Holidays by foldingj on: November 25, 2006 10:06:43 AM
I am a caffeine junkie. And as such, I go through alot of canned soda. What better way to show your holiday spirit and help explain why you are up all the time thinking of crafty things to do, than with a custom soda can wreath. Hot glue is now my friend. *Note to self* (when you get hot glue on your finger, no matter how much you shake your hand, it doesn't come off or cool down) Undecided
