The inside was lined with hardwood and we love the brass-coloured motherboard tray too - it fits perfectly in with its surroundings. In the latest updates, some of the hardware has been installed too. The project looks set to become a classic and there are plenty of beautiful pictures of Boorach's native Shetland Islands in his log too.
