FAQ TIME! If any of you have any questions, leave them in this thread and I’ll update it as they are asked :)
Q: What tool was used to round the wood corners?
A: Here in the UK it’s often called a surform, but rasp is also a common name
Q: Isn’t the monitor too high?
A: Slightly. It looks more so on video due to the perspective but it’s still pretty comfortable. It was only mounted there for this video anyway and will be moved somewhere else so I’ll make sure to have it slightly lower this time.
Q: You’ve made loads of custom PCs… which ones to you actually use?
A: Currently I use the brass and leather build for editing at the studio, and the large silent desk PC (the one with the glass front) is at home and used for photo editing and some gaming etc (though to be fair I haven’t played a game since last Christmas so it’s a fringe use case at the moment).
Q: Have you considered watercooling the PC itself?
A: Yes! I went with air cooling as it’s actually pretty decent (I still need to make some minor tweaks) but I do have plans to try watercooling the thing at some point.
Q: Do you plan these videos? I mean do you make blueprints or you just have a general idea what you're gonna do and just make up on the way?
A: I pretty much always just have an idea of what I want in my head, and then think through the process needed to get there, and then make it up as I go along.
Q: Is making YouTube videos your primary/ only job?
A: YEP! I’m so grateful that I can do what is basically my hobby as my actual job.
Q: Are you from the UK or from the US?
A: Very much the UK.
Q: Could you use a hydraulic system to lower the monitor in a more controlled way?
A: Absolutely! It would make it more difficult to push upwards though, so keep that in mind.

Q: Why did you decide to have monitor swing down and forward? Down and back movement would keep it further from your face when in use? Was it to better hide the latch ( in the back)?

With DIY meaning do it yourself - I am trying some of your stuff and it's not as easy as it looks and I can't do it myself without dimensions and tool sizes and a specification.

While it does look nice, I stand with my comment from the table video, to go with a micro projector.

@DIY Perks - Fantastic work! Few ideas immediately. Style your 4k tower projector similarly but as a lamp to serve as a companion piece? Perhaps a modern lighthousey style to it with smallish screen to diffusing led lamp conversions around it, camouflaging the projector, beautiul illumination from the panels and scope for some imagination . Adding audio to the shelf ends would be an easy mod. One or any odd number of polished washers would make nice camo for a camera/cameras too. Might I also suggest changing out the black cables running to your shelf for white ones, having used a shade of Sharpie or three to style bontanically. Personally would debadge the monitor, no matter the brand ;) Absolutely love your craftsmanship, presentation and humility, Matt. Remain blessed in Jesus.

I have never seen an indoor wall that is just brick. They are almost always just studs with drywall on them. At least its that way where I live

Are you using aluminum, not the bracing parts, but the bug sheets inside... Because of preference.. Can we not do everything from wood, as opposed to cutting up aluminum sheets... I'm a newbie & just learning about tools (female newbie) I'm more comfortable with wood

Another wonderful Project. You can really make anything so gorgeous! It's been a long while since I'm here and see the progress of your work. From a simple DIY to one extravagant and totally wonderful work of art. I already started my own channel and have DIYs and also targeting Million - wish me luck. I know it's not that good compare to you but what important is that because of you my creativity and talent in making beautiful things blossom. Thank you so much for inspiring me and I know a lot of people out there have been inspired by what you are doing. Always be safe. Truly Amazing Talent!!!

I have to say I don't like it, it looks nice but its built with zero ergonomics in mind.
should be fixable though.
1. reverse the monitor so it will hinge backwards towards the wall, not forward.
2. make she shelf lower so the monitor will stay at eye level.
3. the front part of the shelf is a perfect spot for a spotlight/led light for non PC related work.

Looks very nice. I like my computer set-up to be moveable though. And even if not completely moveable, it would have been nice to be able to adjust the hight of the monitor.

very nice construction but you should change the side of your monitor to open from the front of the shelf because the monitor is close to your eyes . and add the shelf a little highier.
