Introduction: Steampunk Monitor

Picture of Steampunk Monitor

In this project, I encased an Envision EN7750 LCD monitor in a wooden frame made of red oak with a feather wood inlay.  The base is routed out to fit the base of the monitor.  The sides have slots cut into them to fit the sides of the monitor and I have Velcro to hold it fast.  The top can be removed if the monitor ever needs to be replaced.  I already replaced it once and given how hard it was to find a replacement I got two.  It was pretty easy to remove the monitor base.  It was just some screws.  And the rest is just some basic woodwork with a router.  The brass elements on the side come from a gas lamp that I took apart.  It looks like it swivels but it is actually fixed in place.  The whole frame is finished in a mahogany stain with two coats of low luster polyurethane.
