Here are some of the thumbnails and doodles I did while trying to figure out what would be the best way to build an eclosure for my home-made Cintiq.

I decided to use MDF to build the enclosure because it is easy to work with and will give pretty accurate rebates when a router is used.

So the top is half way there I think, still have to get some 2mm glass and also some type of ply wood which is 2mm thick for surrounding the glass. The glass also needs to be painted on the back so the circuit boards wont be visible, and of course the whole thing has to be cut into a disk so it can be rotated. Then there is the issue with the base, I want something which I can change the height of and at the same time stable enough so there wont be any chance of things accidentally falling down.

Now I am going to plug everything back in after doing all this fiddling to make sure I didn’t break anything in the process, fingers crossed.
