Do you have one of these ugly plastic electronic photo frames on your desk?
If yes - did you think to give it a new look? To make it "Steampunky"?
I would like to give you whit this instructable some inspirations how you coud convert such a TFT photo frame to a nice Steampunk Gadget.
Step 1: What do you need?
From a tabacco shop I had some nice old wooden boxes. The ones they use for the cigars from Cuba. They give me this boxes for free, because they sell the cigars by piece.
From the junk yard I got a brass fitting which I planned to use for the USB connector.
Because I wanted to use the USB power from the computer to run the frame I digged out an old USB cable. I collect this cables from the electronic trash, cut them off from old keyboards and so on... it's always good to have a stock of them...
Further I used a can of black color and some brass screws. The decoration on the top of the lid is from a gas valve and from a light bulb...
