Wooden case


I was digging around my old favorites and found this.


Its only in Finnish, but you probably get the idea just from the pics.

Edit: IM A FREAKING IDIOT, forgot the link, here it is.

Heh, thats the kind of stuff we sometimes do in shop class. In Finland, wood working is a appreciated skill since it is a large part of our culture. But yes, that took a lot of planning to get them to fit just right.
He says hes going to put watercooling in there later.

Man, that is so freakin sweet. Heavy work there . I'm a trim carpenter by trade, i think that something equivalent would be possible giving myself plenty, and i mean PLENTY, of free time and the tools that i allready have free access to. Damn thats really really nice work.

I'll take that as a personal insult. GRRRR
The only people directly related to Vikings are, the Swedish, Norwegians, the Danish and Icelanders. But yeah, our biggest business (along with electronics) is timber. Over 3/4 of the land is covered in thick forest.

He says it took him 200+ hours to do. Its made of birch and is very functional. He made the plugs for the front panel so that when he takes the casing of the case off, he does not need to use a lot of time reattaching them. It works kind of like older cases, where the whole top would come of. The PSU is also slide in for extra functionality, so you can connect everything to the psu and then slide it in.

But it's an awesome case! beautiful craftsmanship

Nah, w/o anything to ignite a flame, it would have to get pretty damn hot for it to just catch on fire by merely heat...there would have to be a spark somewhere for it to catch on fire...

But wow, I've seen a couple wooden cases and that one really does look the best! I like how he put what looks like shelving paper on the optical drive. Really looks shweet

The little trim edging looks pretty cool also, I'm guessing he used a router or something like that. I'm kinda curious because I thought routers worked best on edges, but hey as people in this thread have said, Finnish heritage contains wood

Awesome looking case.

Fold and Frag on

Even with a spark, you would need highly flamable vapors or something else.

It can be 120 degrees outside, and you can make a spark next to a piece of wood and it wont catch fire .

Nope, not trim. Hand carved birch, and personally, I think its the best looking part of the case since it has different finishes on the buttons. Very accurate work.
