Introduction: 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.
