SkyVue is an Art Deco styled PC made from sapele over a birch plywood frame. Sapele is an African member of the mahogany family.


The internal structure is a cut up aluminum donor case clad with aircraft grade birch plywood. The structure is reinforced with several pieces of aluminum angle bolted to the skeleton.

The cover slips down over the chassis.

The boot drive is a HyperX Predator M.2 SSD and the storage drive is this Corsair 2.5" SSD mounted in the base alongside the Silverstone SFX power supply.
