Hi Geeks, Today I am here with my custom monitor build. I salvaged the LCD from an old laptop and added a display driver board. Mounted everything on aluminium frame. I used revits on joints.

Step 1: The Screen

Screen was salvaged from an old laptop. And I added a LCD driver board to operate the LCD screen.

Step 2: The Frame

I used Aluminium for frame and ACP sheet for electronics. Following shapes of aluminium strips are used.
1. 1/2" Square Pipe
2. L strip
3. T strip
4. straight strip

I also used 4 10mm Acrylic pieces as screen holder. I cut 5mm slotes on them.

Step 3: Conclusion

Result is pretty awesome and useble.
