Carlyeesi, Wooden Computer I by Sabbar Carlyeesi, Wooden Computer I by Sabbar
I just finished my second wooden computer. I went for a Victorian steam-punk feel, what I like to call Cream-punk. Months of work; countless hours - many beers. Yes, it does turn on by cranking it with the clock key.

this is very amazing good sir, I'd love to know more about how you went about creating this ... I've been thinking about making something like this for myself. Any tips or tricks would be much appreciated. Also where did you find those legs at? They are really cool.

Oh yes! This is exactly what I was hoping to find here at DA. ;-) I was recently ogling some vintage Zenith radios from the 1930s and thought, wouldn't it be great if a computer could look something like that. And I think this is probably the closest thing I've seen so far. :-) I love the ornate details and the little crank dealie. Unique and beautifully thought out. Just wow!

My mind is still blown... Do you sell these beautiful creations?? <3

Thank you! I'd love to make pieces to sell, but I don't know if I could make selling these cost effective. Each one is kind of one-shot, custom deal. I doubt I could find some of the pieces - like those awesome clock feet - again. I built this one as I went, with input from my girlfriend whom it was made for. I spent around $1500 on the materials and PC components and then the hours required to get it how I want it is somewhere near 100s (as best I can determine). And then shipping it! Yikes! I am truly flattered that you would even ask! I just don't know if it would be worth it in the long run.

Wow... that is incredibly impressive. Every little bit about its detail is so interesting and well done. I can see how it'd be difficult to really make it worthwhile, especially the time haha you'd be consumed in no time! Well thank you for slaving over it for so long, it's absolutely beautiful! I bet your lady is incredibly in love with it, who couldn't be?!
If it's alright with you, I'd like to share your computer on Pinterest.com? Haha you may get a huge flow of interested people flocking you, though.. Which is why I am asking before just doing it :) When I become incredibly rich, I'll find you and sponsor your work haha

You know it's funny, when I look at I just see the errors. Hahahah. Thank you so much! By all means, share it with whoever you want!

Well if there are "errors" as you say, I don't seem them! Haha so my boyfriend just mentioned that you just need to make a wooden monitor now! :D That'd be incredibly badass.

Thank you!! I'm excited to share it with everyone, it's very unique!
