Xbox 360 Laptop / Plexiglass Need some help/suggestions

Post by abysskeq » Sun Jun 26, 2011 7:23 pm

Ok,

So I was able to build the bottom portion with plexiglass just fine (IE motherboard/dvd drive etc). Now the monitor is whats driving me nuts, does anyone have any suggestions or advice on how to make a monitor casing with plexiglass?

its gonna be hard with plexiglass, but it has been done before. You need to make the monitor casing really strong as it supports the laptop and is on the friction hinges. i put supports un the back of my screen.

The plastic corners that are made for drywall work great. PVC cement not only hold it together, but it also lends some reinforcement. Refer to my deskbook Rev. 2 case

I looked for a link, but it doesn't seem to be online for Lowe's. It is usually around the curtains.
