Custom Honduran Mahogany Desk/Case

Build Description

I'm not a big fan of RGB and because I can never do thing the easy way, I decided to do a custom case mod. So I built a Honduran mohogany desk that also acts as the case for the pc.

Honduran Mahogany is the most stable wood you can use for furniture from an expansion and stability standpoint.

Currently as it stands now, I haven’t oiled it yet, which will come when soon.


It’s only version one and because I’m obsessive, I’m going to likely be working on another very soon to make it even better. I’ve got through 4 desks in the past 2 years and after the first 3 just decided I had to do it myself.

I also host an Apache web server on Ubuntu server on a separate machine, so v2 of this desk will a dual or triple motherboard configuration, much cleaner, and water cooled so I can allow for much lower clearance configurations.


It took me many many hours of work and many late nights because my shop is 2 hours away so I have to maximize the time I spend there!

I’m a professional consultant for big home projects during my day job, and it was nice to take some of that energy and put it into my own home project, which is something I don’t always get the chance to do.
