HOW TO

STEP 1: TEST ALL PARTS + LOAD IMAGE

Before you will start with anything related to this DIY, I would like to recommend you to connect all parts somewhere on wooden table or so, and test if all works as expected.

STEP 2: DESIGN HOLDER – CHOPPING BOARD

First I was thinking how to fix all in place inside the machine without big hurts. I’ve chosen the plastic chopping board, which will be fixed to the monitor and will hold all the needed. So measured and measured, then drill holes and attach the screws.

STEP 3: ADD ALL PARTS TO THE BACK OF MONITOR

Once screws are in place I’ve started will attaching all in place.

STEP 4: TOP PANEL

Top panel was the easiest on the whole machine. I’ve just took the plastic screws and glue it on the cut panel from electrical wire molding.

STEP 5: BOTTOM PANEL

As the opposite, the bottom panel was the hardest part of this project. I need to think carefully were and how to attach power, card slot usb and monitor controller.

STEP 6: BOX

This is the only one drilling needed for the Plastic Box from IKEA.
.. So you can reuse it in a case of you need 🙂 ..

STEP 7: ALL IN ONE – LET’S PLAY!

I’ve tested the machine with power and one usb, all works nicely.

STEP 8: OPTIONAL: BUTTONS & FAN

You can optionally add power & reset buttons + some fan to cool the machine. One day I will add it there… You must believe me.
