Hiding your internet hardware
Making your internet gear, disappear!
I really wanted to solve the problem of having a lot of network cables, switches, routers, adapters all on the floor. Therefore I created a small enclosement for these devices myself. The result worked out really well in my opinion!
Notice: This page still needs some work. I have decided to upload it anyway, as clever people can build this already by looking at the photos .
Three important criteria what I wanted to meet:
- »It should still be possible to work easily with cables, yet make them not as visible as they normally are.
- »It should not be completely closed, as the equipment will get a bit warm
- »Building it should be straightforward!
The first concept was created in 3DStudio Max, which is a 3D modelling application which I normally work with to create game mode. The colored boxes are bounding box versions of the equipment that needs to be placed inside.
To build it, you need the following:
- »Construction glue for wood
- »A saw and a mitre box for making 45 degree cuts
- »Wooden strips. [specify sizes]
You can start making rectangular strips for the amount that you need. I used square shaped wooden strips in the corners, these hold the rectangular strips together. The top lid is also a normal rectangular strip, except that the covering strips are aligned flat instead of vertical. The picture speak for themselves. The bottom only contains a few of these strips. It is important to use good glue, as it holds everything literally together!
The end result is a great enclosement which contains your internet hardware!
