[Featured in the February 4th Instructables Newsletter!]
An oldie but a goodie, Being a macgeek I fell in love with this idea when I saw it in 2001
and I thought I would revive it for the instructable crowd.

Step 1: First You Need a Apple Cube
Ebay, is your easiest place to find a Apple G4 cube, but for the case itself you will pay $70 and double that for a actual mac cube computer.
Step 2: Taking It Apart
the Apple g4 Cube is a joy to service / take apart, you click down on the handle, and pull the whole computer assembly right out of the case, Put that aside
(you can still use the computer, without the shell)
Step 3: Removing the Upper Housing and Air Filter
Four torx screws holds the top piece in place - just unscrew the 4 screws, and pull out the plastic vent,
leaving the two side panels.
Step 4: Putting in the Tissue Box
Buy a square box of tissues, and using a small bungee cord, using the two side panels strap the box so it fits tightly between the two panels
Step 5: The Finished Product
Now you will be the envy, or all the other geeks in your home, or office.
And when they start to cry with jealousy you can now hand them a fresh tissue.
