I thought you guys might like to see my latest custom computer. It was built to be a display piece at a booth at CES next month. I think it's end use is obvious.

What do you think?



I call it Ingraham after the Ingraham Cabinet Co. that made many wooden radio cases during the 30's and 40's. The specific inspiration is the Stromberg Carlson model 1110H radio with Ingraham case.




American black walnut veneer over basswood and aircraft-grade plywood cladding the aluminum skin of a Silverstone LC06 mini-ITX case. Centerpiece is an Arlen Ness baby moon gas cap for a Harley Davidson motorcycle. It is chrome-plated billet aluminum.




Evercool Fox-1 system blower controlled by a rheostat. Back panel is burl walnut.




VIA VB8001 mainboard with 16x PCI-e slot. VIA Nano processor at 1.6GHz.




4GB of Crucial DDR2 and a Crucial 64GB SSD mounted below the board. Large red blower support bracket to help protect it during shipping.

Thanks for looking!

Excellent stuff.
I'd love to have the time to work up some HTPC cases as nicely as this.

Are you familiar with the "Sandbenders" equipment from a couple of William Gibson novels?

I'm not familiar with that but I did see the term Sandbenders once while a-googling. I'll have to look now.
