We left off with a half done storage tower and a mostly finished table and under cabinet. Now we can welcome
Also awesome, we figured we'd have to order a new graphics card to use dual monitors. Jon looked up our current cards specs and found out that the card can handle two monitors for only one instance - with one VGA monitor and and one DVI monitor. And lucky us, these monitors can be hooked up as either DVI or VGA. I don't think I could have planned it better. Added bonus, the monitors have USB ports on the side, making our computer way more awesome, because our older case only has USB plugs in the back, and it was always a pain to plug them in.
Add in a new mouse (Target coupon + sale + carthwheel = cheap!) with buttons that click consistently and our computer set up has been the best it's been in years!
Back to building stuff...
|Look closely and you can see I screwed one on upside down! Whoops!|
I won't go into too much, but making the table base was a lot of pocket screws. I'm slowly learning woodworking patience and I'm pre-painting before assembly now. I guess I'm getting all learn-ed.
So there we go! An L shaped extension table. Notice the lack of storage tower. That's getting its finishing work done on it.
Notice the two openings at the edge. Once I order the slides, I'll be putting in two drawers.
This one will eventually hold the keyboard and the mouse.
All ready for some work!
