    My very own DIY digital photo frame.

    Been working at this on&off all week. I think it turned out pretty good.

    So for xmas my gf got a new laptop as her old one was on it's last leg as a usable daily laptop. So I had the idea that we could turn it into a digital photo frame for her parents. I setup a flickr account for them so we can add photos from anywhere and they will wirelessly stream to the frame.

    This is how it turned out:

    This is what I started with after I already took apart the laptop screen.


    Few cuts here and there and a little stain and this is what I came up with.


    A few detail shots.




    The back isn't as pretty...but **** it no one see's that part


    couple shots of the making of.




    Any of you make anything cool lately?

    I'm making some new bookshelves - but I'll up some photos later. I'm actually copying a design of some I already own, but didn't feel like paying the extra for some more - they're like $500 bucks or some ****.

    I'll up the pics whenever I either think about it or remember - getting old and bored.

    I'm an artist. My hands are too valuable to risk them in that sort of manual labor.
