I think I have enough old computers gear lying around in the attic, storage building, and closets of my house to cover the entire wall of my office in old mainboards and other stuff. One geek with lots of old gear lying around has built the coolest coffee table ever from his old gear.
The table is actually two tables with a table inside that the mainboards and parts are grafted onto and a glass and wood table outside with lighting to let everyone see the geek gear inside. The table is certainly very nice looking and would be perfect for any geek living room or office.
I would like to see a table like this made with a HTPC inside that actually works. This would be the perfect place to hide your computer in plain sight. The table was made from old modem parts and boards from an Intergraph 6000 series computer.
