PC Case Made of Wood!



An amateur tries his hand (and almost chops it off) at building a PC case out of wood. Enjoy ;-)

I really like the look of that case, it is absolutely beautiful.

A little tip if I may: next time use an sheet of aluminum for the front side. It can be cut by woodworking tools and you don't risk your limbs in what I have to say was the most avant-garde use of an circular saw I have ever seen. Also, aluminum is very easy to sand and file.

Neat project, charming is a very good descriptor of the end result! I'm building a more... professionally designed case myself and it's really interesting to see how people have gone about their work before me. Haven't watched your second video yet, but I really hope you sharpened your chisels for that one. ;)

0_o Utiliser une scie circulaire avec une lame pour le bois, sur du métal !? Tu as de la chance qu'aucune dents de la lame se soit barré dans tes doigts ou autre... une simple scie à métaux manuel aurait suffis ^^ (moi un fraise de défonceuse m'a bien fait peur quand un morceau est partie littéralement transpercer une fenêtre...)

Désolé je l'ai fait en Français... J'ai pas le niveau pour faire tout le speech en Anglais ^^

Sinon pour utiliser un ciseau à bois (déjà, il doit être affûté, sinon tu n'arrivera à rien et pire, c'est plus dangereux q'un ciseau affûté) tu traces dans un premier temps les usinages.
Puis tu place le ciseau perpendiculaire à la planche, le plat le long de tes lignes, le tout à ~1;2 mm de cette ligne coté enlèvement de matière (car il va un peu reculer quand tu va frapper).
Puis tu frappes dessus, assez fort, mais pas trop (il ne doit pas se bloquer dedans ^^ ), tu répète le processus le long de toutes tes lignes de traçage (ça sert à couper les fibre du bois, pour éviter les arrachements).
Enfin tu peux commencer à évider ta zone sur 1~2 mm de profondeur (ciseau avec le biseau en bas). Puis tu répète l'ensemble du processus jusqu'à arriver à la bonne profondeur.
Après, ça, pour finir tu peux utiliser le tranchant de ton ciseau pour racler le fond de ton usinage, ça évitera un ponçage ;)

Sorry I did it in French ... I do not have the level to do all the speech in English ^^ (google translate)

Otherwise to use a chisel (already it must be sharpened, otherwise you will not get anything and worse, it is more dangerous than a sharp chisel) you first trace the machining.
Then you place the chisel perpendicular to the board, the flat along your lines, all to ~ 1; 2 mm of this line dimensioned removal of matter (because it goes back a little when you hit).
Then you hit it, strong enough, but not too much (it does not have to lock in ^ ^), you repeat the process along all your lines of tracing (it is used to cut the fibers of the wood, to avoid the pulls) .
Finally you can start to clear your area on 1 ~ 2 mm depth (chisel with bevel down). Then you repeat the whole process until reaching the right depth.
After that, to finish you can use the edge of your scissors to scrape the bottom of your machining, it will avoid sanding ;)

Before pc cases needed dust filters. Now termite filters probably need to be introduced as well

That looks quite nice, especially considering the tools you had on hand.

Looks like a really early switch based pc from like the 70's to early 80's. But it looks cool

some great ideas put into this project, motherboard tray and springs for hdd mounts
i might give it a go myself

Author akram aslam ( ago)
I appreciate the effort. A great start and I have a feeling you'll build better cases in the times to come. I built a PC case out of thermocol once when I was 13 years old. It was indeed fun, so i can imagine you had quite a bit of fun!.. Keep em coming and good luck with your channel.
