A Great Way To Commemorate An Old Friend


A Great Way To Commemorate An Old Friend When you can’t keep your computer functioning anymore, this is one way to deal with it: taking it apart and turning it into a piece of furniture. Much more sentimental (and creative) than tossing it in a landfill.

The end product is actually composed of two tables: an inner table that the boards are screwed into, and an outer wooden frame with glass to enclose the recycled computer innards.

This circuit board table is primarily made of components from an Intergraph 6880 with Edge II graphics (never heard of it? It’s a model from the late 80s and early 90s, the table owner’s first computer) along with 2800 baud modem parts. The boards and drives were carefully placed to fit together like puzzle pieces, and LED lights along the perimeter were wired to automatically illuminate this handiwork once it starts getting dark.
