    I i'm i the process of upgrading my work area and i needed a desk to go with my new gaming chair.the desk will have a built in pc and a file server to send files to all of my machines and other pcs on my network.i did not want to spend a ton on the build so i will be making the entire project from spare parts and wood left over from other builds.the desk needs to be self contained and mobile as my work area is small.so far i have the frame built and i will be spending the day mapping out the electronics.here is a few shots of the build so far.

    So I got a lot done today.the desk is wrapped in carbon fiber and I installed RGB LEDs to the legs. Next I will put on all the logos and graphics. Then make the covers for the front of the legs out of plexi glass.
