Author Stefan Batrinache ( ago)
Just throw your hardware in a fucking drawer, is the same thing.

Author onewaffleshort ( ago)

Author Akpro Oo ( ago)

Author Ryan Beeton ( ago)
This took 20 hours? Does that include the drive to the store and waiting in line at the register?

caselabs sells motherboard trays

Author jvirg ( ago)
this is out of style by about 150 years.

Author Hyrizon // Gaming Channel ( ago)
That's one shitty PSU

Author Holzbrett ( ago)
wow no airflow, no dustfilter, too much space wasted, "no lightning", no design. For the first case good work but could get a lot better;)

Author 9 Tails Kurama ( ago)
can it burn?

Author Dont Panic Media Group ( ago)
Would love to see more wooden cases or heck, what about a DIY Cases playlist, not just wood but use other materials too

Author Azeem El Bey ( ago)
It looks nice to me! Has lots of potential.

Kids these days are so useless. Nothing complicated about this project at all. Proof of concept??.... yes you can make things out of wood.

He can't even drill a fucking hole!

Author DecibelAlex ( ago)
this guy is not a very good carpenter

Author Brian Swartz ( ago)
Needs grounding straps between components, PSU, ETC.

Author adobePC ( ago)
Not to be mean but when all is said and done I would not use this case for a multitude of reasons.

Author Jhonatan Jhones ( ago)
wtf did i just saw? bro ure so wrong...

Author scott Barstow ( ago)

Author Apoc Banditz ( ago)
MS you need to help him, send him quality parts so this could be great

Author TotallyNotLogan ( ago)
I'm kind of an idiot, so...

Can someone tell me why this won't burn...?

Author Gamers Arena ( ago)
for ur kind info it doesnt look beautiful from any plzz try to be honest wid ur opinions...btw nobody wants to tell bad things abt their handmade things... :(

Author Brynje ( ago)
would actually look pretty neat with a plexiglass panel at the side and a glow lightbulb inside instead of LEDs.

Author Halo Exodus ( ago)
I plan on building a wood case with radiator support. Fan filter grills. SSD mounts. And a glass side panel. And I'm going to paint it black and put some USB 3.0 (or 3.1) front panel connections. And maybe SD card support. Any suggestions?

Author Joseph Stott ( ago)
it's actually very money saving if you buy a bit of partical board and just screw everything to that... this is obviously for people who want their PC to look a certain way. But I don't know why you didn't dremel out some holes for ventilation. seems weird.

Author Nickword 1 ( ago)
god you guys are so white...

Author zubir jangsi ( ago)
i can see that he clearly reading a script. hahaha

Author pahaahv ( ago)
It tore up some parts of the wood but there's nothing I could do about it. "It-guy" doing woodwork.

Author Zend Mij ( ago)
why use a groundplate? just screw the motherboard onto small wooden plates, and use a adhesive to bring it on the wooden case. No holes, nothing to hide afterwards and way les work.

Nice wood, but everything looks very rough and unfinished.

Author BMWcarguyE36 Cars ( ago)
Look at pc wars by techource with that natural looking wooden one that actually has leaves and a few vines over it. It's awesome!

Author MisFit ( ago)
did it catch on fire yet?

Author X_Franklin _X ( ago)
I actually like the look, it's p cool

Author Matt C ( ago)
Not the best looking thing. Very basic looking, just like a wooden box. Would be nice if it had some nice details all around the case. Also, maybe a glass window instead of it just open. It'd be nice to have some depth on the outside.

Author ozayevable ( ago)
its no a case, its a box.

Author Carton ( ago)
Can you make a tutorial

Author Wooden PC ( ago)
Did you called me?

Author Skulldriver101 ( ago)
i want to see another better one with a more in depth guide. also nice channel im subbing.

Author Leonardo Po ( ago)
make one outta aluminum

Author yaro grigoriev ( ago)
-.- you just made a wooden box, flapped to it, and said done. Come on, you should have added on and used different wood for the sides, made your own SSD slots, and so on.

Author Bob Mclean ( ago)
good idea to start from scratch again, that case looks like shit...

Author Ranu Sharma ( ago)
brother i am thankfull for you. i like your idea too much

Author Kai Song See ( ago)
A perfectly decent case being "salvaged for parts" to put in a wooden box?? No thanks

Author NitroN_ ( ago)
doesn't look that clean, looks like an old shelf/coffin/idk

Author Rize ( ago)

Author DKbik3r 1234 ( ago)
make a series on diy pc cases i love the thought of home made pc cases

Author Gonzalo Marsilli ( ago)
sorry but this is ugly.

Author Antonetta Kowalewski ( ago)
I think you need to take some time and go to woodprix website to learn how to make it.

Author Jooosh ( ago)
I want to see another case and how to make it

Author Travis Nicely ( ago)
I have read all the comments, and there pretty correct: bad execution. I think it's a lack of knowledge after seeing a desktop computer transplanted onto a wooden plate with parts of the computer glued and stuck, that got cut off the original desktop. No originality, you just remade the desktop you cut up, but bigger and horrible looking. Why not make it complete your, and don't use any parts from the desktop.

Author David Nguyen ( ago)
don't bother. looks horrible

Author Marek Wójcik ( ago)

Author Squidiot - ( ago)
ugly af

Author Zailon Xwadastet ( ago)
very ambitious, ive been wanting to make myself a case out of nothing but plexiglass

Author Brandon Hazlett ( ago)
You should try to make the front panel look like an actual front panel

Author MD Rehman ( ago)
shut the fuck up....

Author MrDigitalben ( ago)
I'd like to see a second case

Author Baum Kuchen ( ago)
This case is a mess. You can say the aesthetics was your priority all you want, but your work is saying something else. Just look at the salvaged motherboard mount plate. You simply took normal wood screw and screwed that poor motherf***er to the wood and didnt care you bent it. PSU mounting ? You made a hole without any planning at all, which is now by accident preventing the PSU from moving... yeah good enough, leave it like that. There is no problem in not making a perfect case. The problem is in you obviously making cheap quick "case build" just for the sake of posting new video to you "tech" channel.

Author rea LLY ( ago)
Make a tuturial

Author Ivan Gabriel ( ago)
Awesome but airflow lol.

Author pantera tanker ( ago)
thats pretty cool. make me one now XD

Author Tyler Travis ( ago)
I think you just inspired me to try this

Author Rob Swope ( ago)
natural maple with a bit of glaze, a tempered glass window, and a psu basement would look sick.

Author RODDYGINGER ( ago)
You should've used an MDF board, way cheaper than actual wood

Author William Bishop ( ago)
Very rough looking. I'd redo it.

Author Luka Didović ( ago)
hahahahahaha this is too funny

Author Custom Hardware ( ago)
I managed to build my own wooden pc case, with a glass window too. It only cost me 100$, with the components too. It doesn't look the best, mostly because half of the time i didn't know what i wanted to do. I just wanted to let you know that because of you it was built, I saw your video some time ago and because i had some free time i started working. Made a video on my channel, check it out if you want!

Author happysmash27 ( ago)
I want to know how to make it myself.

Author Leon Trotsky ( ago)
Don't talk shit if you can't do better wood working alone is something not many people know how to do wood working yes he could have done better I would have used wood filler where the wood got tore up where he drilled them, I would have sanded and polyed the out side and then used 400 sand paper on the outside then 1000 grit to make the outside of it shine, and then I would have made it like it was a table because it might end up warping on the top.

Author Connor Hobbs ( ago)
Looks like shit for $100......actually I bet I could make a better looking one for $20

Author Ork WAAAGH! ( ago)
thing will be charcoal after gaming with an overclock.

Author ddavel5441 ( ago)
I like it! Thanks for the info that you need the metal foundations for the mobo and other stuff. Cuz I plan to build a wood case, and will carve up an older Dell case :)

wooden pc

Author ___Drgns N Bacon 4tw ___ ( ago)
byron do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Author Casy Chapin ( ago)
hey man, I'm a fairly experience woodworker getting into pc building and I can tell you honestly your woodworking is a good example of learning a project, if I'm planning something complex I will build several versions, if I'm smart I will use cheaper materials for the firsts one.
I really like the idea of a wooden pc cas and I think with some stylization and time it could be really cool,
I would like to see you continue your project, and will offer any advice I can

nice work bro pc master race 4 the win

Author Cro Herza ( ago)
how you think to put a gpu in it?

Author Jeremy Medlock ( ago)
what i would try is this: read the entire comment as its long but descriptive

start with pieces of wood you have milled to the exact measurements you will end with.
sand everything buttery smooth, and pre-drill your holes in a smaller size than your final hole. then use a very sharp, preferably new drill bit at a very high rpm and go slowly. this will lessen the chances of damaging marks you'd rather avoid. next order some replacement fasteners and pegs from IKEA that they use in all their furniture. use some scraps of wood and experiment with recreating or emulating their joining techniques. this is a system that produces very clean finished results when done properly. once all of your joining work is complete, completely disassemble the case and SPRAY your stain onto the wood. this yields a much more consistent even finish. allow it to dry completely and then lacquer the entire thing before reassembly. once dry, reassemble the case and install your build. afterwards use a microfiber buffing wheel and bees wax for a deep luster. keep us posted and let me know if you use my idea

Author SolelyFlukeD ( ago)
Honestly not that good. He basically just chopped up an old case and put it in a hand made box.

Author damysticalone87 ( ago)
It doesn't sound "crazy" it sounds stupid and it is stupid. Because it can happens that in summer the hardware components overheat and burn your wooden pc case and then all your house is in flames. This can be and is dangerous as hell.
Stupid morrons.

Author Thomas Allen Turruviate ( ago)
Bravo!!!! Not intended to compete with Dell, but as an exercise in learning , creativity, and the satisfaction of hands on craftsmanship....very well done. A first step in blending tech and art.

Author dualscimitars26 ( ago)
idiots are gonna hate... as a custom minded person with a history of fabrication. i love your case. vents panels and other necessities are easily added down the line. if any of you knuckle head derposauruses cant figure that out.. then dont comment and just keep scrolling, the man told you idiots its in no way finished ffs... keep trucking man, it looks nice

Author SilverSurger ( ago)
well done, but the part has some of grandma Erna oak kitchen 😉

Author Billy ( ago)
so you stuffed your pc in a drawer shelf. Lack of thought and creativity on this one

Author Kolohe N7 ( ago)

Author Ev3rM0r3 ( ago)
So instead of housing your components in a fireproof metal box with ventillation, you add a low flash point varnish with no venitilation and think this is a good concept. Man did you miss out on shop class and chemistry. GL with your computer when your powersupply shorts and burns your house down because your case fueled it.

Author dollars1234 ( ago)
I love seeing "out of the case" thinking. see what I did there? 😝 anyway. love the case. looks really good. I know this video has been for a few months. but I was wondering if you had thought about epoxy coating the case. I makes it look like its got a sheet of glass covering it. very high quality. you can get it at places like Lowe's and home depot.

Author Twigish ( ago)
The bomb has being planted...

Author DaGunchijs ( ago)
So basically you took a drawer and put some pc parts in it? Well good job... XD
