    I built the entire outside out of wood. The 1" support beams are black walnut, and the panels are oak. I took the motherboard tray and the drive bays out of my old case and screwed them into the support beams. I had all the wood, so the whole thing was free for me to build.

    And for the updated part i added to cooling fans, did more wire management, and finally put 2 coats of varnish on

    because you dont see a wooden case everyday, was going to give it an 8/10 but it was really nice and tidy, I would post my case but people dont appreciate custom painting even if it is just 1 color..... nice parts also I would give you and 10 if you have a good graphics card doesnt need to be anything special

    8.5/10

    All right, I'll bite........

    Not the first time a computer geek got wood over his rig......

    Looks nice though. Seems like it'd be hard to keep cool though---Wood's quite an insulator. Airflow is key.

    Funny 8.5 out of 10...

    Well good job with the exhaust fan! Air flow is very important :).

    Much better this time around.

    Nice job Gilligan. I voted for outstanding. That's because the case is made of wood, it's different. You put work into it. One question, do you worry about possible fire hazards?
