Have Some Old VCD/VCR/DVD Player Cabinets - Useless ? Pliz Don't Throw Away ...


yes guys, you can make a thin HTPC cabinet using the above mentioned goodies.
While cleaning the storeroom, I got two old CD players - gone kaput.
The looks of those old VCD player cabinets belled a "click" and ...........
< the pictures will tell you the outset of my modding ... />
__________________________________________________ _________________________


Unfortunately, I don't have a rotary multitool like Dremel, so I used the following tools,





Oops, please be careful while using sharp edged tools, heh heh heh !



To make a long story shortened, finally I managed to chiseled out the following alphabets on the cabinet hood,



and, made a rectangular cutout for a DVD-RW at the front cabinet.



Rest is a thin storyline. There will be some putty appliance, sanding, re applying synthetic putty, paintjob etc etc.









__________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ _____________________________
1. H x L x B of this cabinet is around 3" x 16" x 12" which can accommodate a mATX cabinet (244 x 244 mm) along with a DVD drive but there will be some problem on putting a full size PSU. The best way for putting a PSU inside this cabinet will be in naked form or some small size PSUs.
2. No room for tower coolers but it can accommodate liquid coolers (from my observation) and of course standard size coolers will not have any problem.
3. Back side pictures uploading soon. Paining will hardly consume three cans of paintspray. Perforated aluminum sheet (thin, say 10 gauge) will shield beneath the AMD logo and some more cuttings still required for air inlet and outlet which will be covered by perforated sheets.
I have completed a mini cabinet modded from an old CD/DVD copier ( a different story and will post with pictures ), and currently I'm on my way to build a cuboid case for my present rig.

Thanks for the suggestion, but PSU types shown in this picture will fit in the cabbie.

I'll do bro Banik, but I'm building a cuboid for my current rig, which needs to be completed asap.
Just a question, could I open another buildlog for my ongoing cuboid case @ChironX, @johnjoyjoe and @ bro Banik ? Afterall, what I need is you guys' valuable suggestions and moral support !

Create as many Build logs as you want, . A build log is not a sale thread which has any sort of prerequisite,

Thanks bro. I'm going to finish this task asap (whenever I get back to home) as it is a gift for my eldest son. Lols, I am not going to put an Intel setup inside this cabinet !
