Miss Betsy’s Steampunk Monitor

Almost a year ago, I highlighted an awesome Instructable by Miss Betsy to create your own Steampunk keyboard and mouse. Her Instructable was so well liked that Miss Betsy has continued to create instructions for modifying your computing gear to add a Steamy flair.

Her latest undertaking was the Steampunk Monitor, an in-depth but approachable guide to transforming your computer’s display.

Here’s the materials you’ll need to get started:

  • 19″ Dell E197FPf LCD Monitor
  • 1/3″ and 1/2″ copper pipe and assorted fittings and connectors
  • 1/4″ screws and rod
  • Brass Cap Nuts
  • LED’s ( red and green from a grab bag)

There’s also a rather large collection of tools that are required to get the job done, so do be sure to look through all of the Instructable before diving straight in.
