  • This will be a perfect gift for my invisible girlfriend.

  • Absolutely love how he presents these tutorials like your everyday people will be following along

    • Right .. he'd got what? 5-7 grand into it?

    • 700th like

    • @bahbahbah Yeah, just a typo that I forgot to fix

    • @$ixBall can you a ford english classes?

    • Yeah

  • *spills drink all over desk* friend: "No big deal just clean it up." this guy: *shakes them* "NO YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND"

    • I think the internal components should be well protected from liquid spills

    • Man, if any liquid finds it's way to the components, you did something wrong here

  • I love how he still mentions some recommendations for you to follow, as if someone would be crazy enough to try this DIY project.

    • I'm saving all these videos for the future because I do count on trying his projects someday!

    • I'm already going to start work on it, sadly however, it's been hard as fuck to get the PSU He used.

    • I'm tempted.

    • @Gibbo "would" we all "would" do it

    • Someone def will

  • Imagine showing up to a LAN party with just a table

    • then start unwraping pokemon card

    • @YOUCEF DZ costs $4000

    • @David T oh please, he made something way more useable than imac

    • @YOUCEF DZ dont give apple any ideas!

    • "don't touch the table. It's not of ur business"

  • -Take a listen -*hears noting* -It's cleary audible but there's nothing we can do about it, it's till pretty impressive -*keeps hearing nothing*

  • " The use of plenty of lubricant is definitely recommended and then go slow to keep in control and lengthen the life of your bit " Great advice for many scenario's 7:14

    • Wrong time stamp.

    • Lmao

    • LMAO

  • That looks very clean but i was expecting a projector instead of a monitor.

  • Thanks for the instructions. I made one too, but I got a bit carried away, so now the whole thing is invisible. Pretty amazing stuff, I wish I could show you

    • Man I’m saving up …and once I have my own place It would be the first thing but not sure that I’m going to myself because I’m not great with tools.!

  • this is just: "art attack" for adults, i love it

    • Art Attack for adults, or the 3D Bob Ross, with his unwavering belief that other people already have the capability of doing what he's doing

    • I'm not even an adult

    • @Gabriele V. non mi aspettavo di trovare italiani qua sotto lol

    • @Aneeq In Italy we've had te same one since the start (we all love him, he basically made our childhood)

    • I haven't heard that name in decades. I loved that show it was good used to watch it back in the day

  • For veneers, you can buy a large mattress bag, with a vacuum port. Put the item inside, vacuum out the air, and the pressure will be perfect and evenly distributed. It's how I put veneers on guitars, multiples at a time.

  • I was worried about cooling, but this guy was even more worried about cooling

  • I'm curious to the overall cost of materials to build without PC parts

  • This guy has to be trolling with how many times he says "AL-LU-MINIMUM"! I love it!

  • He : Makes a tutorial, telling perfectly how to do it and all. Everyone : Nah, we will just watch.

    • @grisu take woodshop and make it at school

    • I do it! With water cooling so the noise is even less and the bottom aluminium is flat without any holes

    • All i need is money and time, one day when i finish university and settle down ill definitely do this one

    • Yeah, cause this aint worth the effort. Neither the cost for building these, nor the time put in makes sense. Just get a laptop or an iMac or whatever, if a desktop body bothers you that much. Who in his right mind would put in the work to build this thing?

    • Me: tells family that I would like to attempt building this and/or the floating monitor My family: That's a very nice pipe dream

  • I love the veneer. As for cooling, reversing the airflow could help by 2-3 degrees C. There is a reason why fans blow air INTO the heatsinks, not out of them. Hats off to creators who could do a clever job like this.

  • When you think about the components in a PC you can make a case out of almost anything that will house them. I'm getting a ton of ideas from this.

  • you're so cheerful and you give off such a positive vibes. This is one of the biggest reason my kids love watching your videos

    • I hope they don't expect you to do this 😅

  • Love how y'all say "aluminum" ;) You can also make a table with an aluminum inlay, inset over the processor (CPU) as a hot plate for keeping your coup-a-tea warm. Preferred the shorts at 4:16, nice legs, on the table too. You could just superglue a laptop under and existing table, effectively invisible unless thief if crawling.

  • I clicked this thinking it was a joke, he built it legit and I'm here like wow

  • I LOVE love love your projects! This one is definitely on my too list!

  • Amazing vids. I'm yet to see any builds from Matt that I'm not inspired by. I've read some comments and just don't understand the haters. So many people are so unpleasant about his videos. I get that there are a lot of tools and parts bin materials in a lot of builds but many people who watch these for inspiration will have a good set of tools and spares. I think these are great and I hope that he gets plenty of paid commissions off the back of it.

  • 81C load temps on an MSI GPU (like the 2070 you have), are significantly higher load temperatures than with the stock fans attached to the heatsink (this would likely yield over 20 C cooler). Just FYI. Pretty good for a desk though!

  • I just discovered this channel and my god this is the sort of content I love to watch on youtube

  • Amazing build, so elegant! If you allowed a quarter inch or so more thickness you could also add a lining of vinyl or rubber under the top sheet which would make it even quieter, even making it sound more solid when you tap the top of it

  • "Most people would assume that this is a normal wooden table." Most people might assume you're a normal man. Turns out, you're actually some kind of engineering, carpentry, artistic wizard!💻👨🏻‍💻🛠🎨🧙🏻‍♂️🏆♥ Thank you! This was so much fun to watch. (Good God, I've turned into some gratuitous emojier....)

  • Fantastic build, great job! Quality craftsmanship and innovation. This is how PCs should have been packaged from the beginning.

  • I absolutely love this build, I am seeing if I can source the material locally to attempt this myself. Thanks for the inspiration!

  • This guy is definitely a hold my beer type guy.

  • Clamps across wood bridges to hold down the wide mdf/plywood sheets over the veneer would be my suggestion; I have been working on my version of this for quite some time off and on, you gave me some excellent ideas (retraction capability) thank you

    • Just a reminder, ur comment have 5 likes

  • I've thought about doing something like this with my coffee table. It's one of those that you can lift the top up and forward. Imagine having a PC built into that, hooked into the 65" TV as a monitor.

  • i would suggest making sure your wood grain is all facing the same direction when gluing down otherwise you have the middle going different direction than the sides

  • Awesome build. I would have maybe watercooled the whole system to make it even more stealth but that's just my preference. You could also remove the hollow sound by simply adding some polystyrene into the empty spaces inside the table. This will dampen the reverberations caused when knocking and make it sound much more dense that it actually is. EDIT: Just seen you've done a watercooling video for this build so never mind that point lol :)

  • The Verge: “Well first you’ll need a table.” Matt: Well actually that’s all.

    • Hammer the brace until it clasp

    • LMAO

    • Will Bagnall “he not fighting static, he fighting cancer!”

    • @Virgil Young and the wireless static wristband

  • Since you're drilling holes on the bottom for the air, couldn't you instead of 40 small 40mm vents just put a couple of 120mm ones to blow from downside up?

  • I also saw Linus' version, but I can say that your version is far beyond his! I also saw the monitor clip. You are fantastic! 👌

  • It s a really cool project. I d have used howver real wood as an outer shell, rather then sheets. I know it d have made the table far thicker, but i just have a thing against those sheets

  • Love it. A 2-way mirror display would look lovely for this in my opinion. Just about to watch your cool drop down idea now.

  • Normal people: "Desktop PC" Matt: "Deskin PC"

    • Hahahaaaahaaa

    • Oof I read that as de-skin the first time

    • @SlapHappy You beat me to it! Thank you for saying what we're all thinking. Some people just think they are smarter than everyone around them, while the truly intelligent get to just sit back and laugh!

    • Deskbottom Pc

    • Indesk pc

  • Another great build! I think a projector mounted underneath would be awesome! Projectors have gotten smaller & thinner so finding one that can fit wouldn't be too difficult... Then you can have a screen come out of your floating shelf idea which would really fit the whole theme of the build!

  • DIY perks, the channel we all watch for the relaxation rather than actually wanting to build any of this.

  • For the next revision you could embed the screen, keyboard and touch-pad into the table surface. Or even touchscreen monitor, just like in Throne Legacy. =)

  • The only flaw with this is that you cant rage on your desk, you would be slamming your pc

  • "So, sir, tell us how your house burned down." "I overclocked my desk."

    • Hey, maybe he screwed up and used magnesium instead of aluminum, a friend of mine almost did that, got the wrong billet in the mail. Overclocking on that could end pretty catastrophically.

    • 😂😂😂😂

    • @Santi Kingz Yes!

    • Sooo how much does this cost to make?

    • 😆

  • Really loved this build, I would've done some things differently of course, but I totally would've been lazy and got Ikea desk legs instead 🤣🤣

  • Would have been nice to add to the table 1 or 2 USB ports, anyway great idea ;)

  • To prevent the hollow sound, i´d recommend using sound isolating foam as it absorbs the sound.

  • That is so awesome. I have never seen that done before. You're a genius. What size is your monitor?

  • It sucks that "DIY" channels like 5 minute crafts give DIY a bad name while this dude embodies what it means to be a true DIY person

    • You know what’s funny? I don’t like 5 minute crafts and they are based in my country and I really don’t understand a Cypriot channel is one of the most subscribed channels in the world

    • @Flankerski One Niner also, you can do all of that with hand tools. (metal saw, and hand drill)

    • @AxeOne yup 👍

    • @Flankerski One Niner those are some common tools and i think most people already have them.

  • That’s awesome! I agree with having a motorized monitor or wall mounted because the monitor sitting on the table gives it away.

  • Imagine something like this but with a clear acrylic top, leds, and water cooled. That would be beautiful.

  • That shot at 8:03 is so sexy! How do you, in every video make everything just so perfectly measured, with everything lining up to the nanometre, with every possibility thought of with making no mistakes... This is the god of DIY Perks! Your videos are just so professional!

  • I used Micronaughts building sets to make my first walking and floating bots. I also used their building pieces to make face masks, helmets, space craft, cities, art enclaves for gardens, high rises with observatory domes in stacked or tiered clusters. I had loads of fun with that kind of toy. It tore your fingers up with the joiners but the exploration of new ideas was worth aching finger tips.

  • Your PC builds have been getting more and more meta. This is desk-ception level though.

  • That’s genius, I think some brands should sell something like this practical and looks nice!

  • 30 years later this guy becomes president: Another country's president: "So where's your country?" This dude: **points at the ocean**

    • @Toiro Vermelho Building aboveground is a lot easier to do, since you don't have to bore a hole into the earth to build your new shack, and it also requires significantly less work to put together a house aboveground than it would to make a hole, build the house entirely from the inside, and then realize you've positioned the entire thing two feet too far to the left. Which is another good thing about building in the open air: things can be easily demolished if they are no longer needed. When you dig a hole... You can fill it later, but just hope that whatever material you used for the sides of the building is easily burned, unless the materials are very loosely placed in the same general vicinity. There's plenty of pros for tunneling, but I assume that since you said "building" that simply digging a tunnel isn't what you were envisioning. Really sorry about the paragraph response to a 3-month-old comment

    • Why didn't we ever, as the human race, just build into the ground, instead of building *onto* it?

    • Atlantis

    • He's British, so that isn't likely.

  • Saving all these DIY builds for when I buy my own home.

  • Great job, for a less contemporary design look another variation on the desk is have the edge of the table top grooved to hold the aluminum and put a thin layer of wood on top instead of the the glued wood veneer and the bottom set in to allow removal for upgrades. Again there are so many possibilities on this design now on to your water cooling video as I thought the temperatures are a bit high. Thumbs up!!

  • I was expecting the solution for the monitor to be a projection (which is still rly fine in aesthetic). Very cool build!

  • Creative, magnificent voice, great presentation, and good craftsmanship. Man, you're the whole package!

  • Incredible smooth build, really enjoyed this one, thank you very much my creative friend 🙌🏼💯👊🏾

  • Yet another mind blowing minimalistic project, great work I will definitely be considering building this

  • What I’ve learnt from this….don’t trust furniture in Matt’s house! Sitting on the sofa and it transforms into an 80” water cooled tv! Is that a bar stool? No it’s a laser engraver 🤣

  • LTT: This set is so clean that it has no wires DIYPerks: This set is so clean that you can't even see it

    • @worldindo1 cool. You should go ahead and do those improvements, and do a video about it. I'd love to see that.

    • There are definitely huge improvements that could've been done to the engineering of this build.

    • lol this guy put LTT to shame 😆 imagine what a collab would yield 😱

    • I literally watched LTT 's video for the cleanest desk they've made. And this guy's is cleaner. lol

  • You could've installed a custom water cooling system for the cpu to make temps go lower but overall its a cool build!

  • dude you are officially one of the best youtubers ever. You are so kind, precise and calm. You have a soothing voice and your every video has incredibly perfect sound and lighting. Everything turns out beautiful to you and I don't understand how you do it, I can't glue two pieces of wood without finding the hammer stuck on my forehead. In the next life I want to be you. also because your work looks really beautiful

  • Interesting. A couple of comments: a way to make epoxy stick to difficult surfaces, such as aluminium or certain plastics, is to 'wet sand' the epoxy into the workpiece. To do this, you need to be wearing rubber gloves and the sanding is best done with a coarse grit such as 100 to 120. The result is a far stronger bond than you would get without this step. Next point: since an important objective of this build is to achieve a quiet computer, ie for people who dislike extraneous noise, IMO the video would be much better without the 'music' track, which I find distracting and unnecessary.

  • You really need to tell Linus you will help with his next desk build

  • "Most people would assume that this is a normal wooden table" No, Matt, no. With your videos, most of us would assume that you've somehow incorporated a 95 inch 8k TV, several gaming systems, full surround sound, and a toaster into that table.

    • @Rendy Irawan a cup warmer would be rather possible, with those two high power calculating pieces of sand already in there

    • most people don't watch these videos

    • Sometimes I wonder if DIY Perks isn't really a spy.

    • I need a toaster inside my desk now! I'm thinking if I angle it slightly and put powerful enough springs in, I could get it to pop out straight onto a plate Wallace and Gromet style.

    • A built in toaster would be awesome. Add a cup warmer too for coffee mugs. Make this happen Matt!

  • Amazing but I believe the cables could be managed better. Still, great work!

  • I'm wondering if this table feels cold, since metal has better heat exchanger than wood

  • Love this build although i wonder, why could you not mount 4 120mm fans to the bottom aluminium piece instead to create the positive pressure with the holes drilled just below them?

  • This is interesting and informative. I was thinking you'd do a flip up monitor too. That would be an interesting addition or modification.... Maybe I'll do that

  • Matt has literally built PCs for everyone in his house, including his grandson.

  • Nice build. Quick question: Have you thought about liquid cooling?

  • This has been in my recommended videos for like a week and I just figured it was some kind of a joke. Then I realized... the PC must be inside table. Can't wait to see how you build it!

  • That's is the best piece of furniture I've ever seen.and hissing the PC within.is on another level altogether.good job!

  • what a genius, this would also work amazing in places with cold weather - instead of using a kotatsu just use this desk

  • Imagine getting mad at a game, slamming the desk, and the screen suddenly goes black lmao

  • threaded inserts are rarely actually needed you can tap wood and it has a lot of strength
