Reality Bites, I have the teeth marks to prove it

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

Ah, the internet. Where men are men, women are men, and children are police officers.

My husband works with computers (repairing/building them, etc.), so I showed this to him ... He said, "Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiice!" So, that means you did a fabulous job!  Grin Great use of old computers.

very cool, good use of something that no one wants. I wish I had something like that.

Yeah, that's rad. 

I like the somewhat creepy glow it casts over everything.

My husband and I both work in the IT field and this is a great idea to recycle old computer parts.  We have so much old parts laying around and never thought to use it for anything else.
