Scratch Build: ReWenge


This is all thanks to Mohit Garg. You see, a few days ago, I was discussing with him about a rig he wanted to make, which was to be made out of wood. Now, i haven't worked on wood before, and seeing how I like challenges, I thought it might be a good time to try my hand at some old-school carpentry, since Flux is on hold at the moment due to non-availability of funds.

The best part about using wood is that it is cheap (atleast the one that I'm planning to use), and is relatively easy to cut without resorting to power tools. I have ordered the material that I need already, and am expecting delivery either today or by Monday. I thought that I'd post this when I have something to show, but there is time to kill now and posting it right now felt like the best idea. Once I start modding (which I hope will be tomorrow late at night) I don't know whether i'll remember to take the pics

Any way, keep checking this thread for updates.

Oh and yes, about the build's name- I know how to spell 'Revenge'- its just that I'll be using Wenge for the finish, and this sounded like a good name at the time. In hindsight, it feels kinda lame. Once the build starts to take shape, I'll be counting on you guys to help me out.
A disclaimer, of sorts- First time using wood, or even thinking about it. Keep your expectations low, and the flaming even lower.
Wish me luck.

Re: Scratch Build: ReWenge

expect concept renders if I'm bored enough. But then, I don't have anything in my mind- I'll be pulling this one out of my ass.
Running a fever at the moment, but still can't hold the excitement.

its gonna be a monster...as of now, the height is about 3ft...so temps probably won't be such a big deal as its not gonna be OC'd or gamed on heavily- this is more of a download rig.

First batch of Materials In

So, after waiting a full day, doing nothing but twiddling my thumbs, I got the first shipment of materials, namely this:



Doesn't look too bad. I'd liked something that was a bit more reflective, but whatever. The spots are from my wife's feet- she almost trampled the thing and broke it. Well, she does have a knack to end up doing these things. i should be getting used to all this by now.



Boy, is this thing huge? As you can see, its taken all of the space my wife has generously allotted to me for my modding activities, or as she prefers to label them "Huge headache and mess generating, serious waste of time and money causing, fruitless whims".


My modest collection of modding related items, unceremoniously dumped into boxes by my OCD-inflicted wife. Not much in there, except for old PSUs, screws, waterblocks, pumps, maybe a rad too, somewhere.



And a bonus: Look what I found under the kitchen sink (no, seriously, this is where I found it). Will have a dekko soon to see if it fits my bill. I guess it must have belonged to the previous owner of the house. No stand-offs, sadly, but Mav has told me he'd be shipping them over for me tomorrow, so not all hope is lost.



Well that's about it. Not too sure why I bothered posting all this- extreme boredom I guess. Well, at least you got to see where I mod. I miss the old house- the hall was so much bigger, and it was all MINE.
Beggars can't be choosers I guess.

hehhehe...I had no idea. The camera is on hold at the moment, and I haven't been able to transfer the funds to Prajith...the authorisation code that I'm supposed to receive is not coming through, maybe because Visa site was down. And yes, I mean those screws...no wait, the little brass thingies that the screws for attaching the mobo to the cabbie go in to. If you have em, send em off...I need all I can get.
