Project Information

Build a DVD & hard drive case to go along with my computer case.
I was at a yard sale and found a brass post office box door.
Had to polish it up but the lock and all works great.




Not just a pretty case it has function as a DVD and Hot Swap Hard drive. It also has a sound amplifier for my head phones.
May be adding on switches for more than one computer later.

Sweeeeet. Like the computer case too. I've been known to scratch build a computer case or two as well :)

This one had many years of hard service but a lot a sanding and buffing got it presentable.
You may have noticed the pictures look different, well to be able to see the brass shine I had to turn off the flash.
With flash wood looks nice with out flash brass looks nice go figure.
Playing with the lock mechanism was a lot a fun trying to get it to use the letters I wanted.
In the end I set it for one letter so it would be easy to open.
Every time you close it, it resets so had to make it easy for my feeble mind. lol
