PC Case Made of Wood!

  • Added:  10 months ago
  • An amateur tries his hand (and almost chops it off) at building a PC case out of wood. Enjoy ;-)

    Credits:
    - Produced and presented by Celso Soares
    - Music in the video by Celso Soares (That's me, the guy in the video :)
    - Awesome animations for the intro and outro based on the work from the great Beeple. Check out his work here: beeple-crap.com/

    A big thanks to my brother André for donating the PC parts for this experiment.

    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.

      haha yeah i know, that was crazy XD I will use aluminium in the future, need to learn how to work with metal. Also, I made a second case out of wood, it's up on the channel if you are interested. Thanks for commenting!

    how did you install the motherboard standoffs in the wood.

      drilled with a small bit, not too deep, then screwed tightly by hand

    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. ;)

      Yes, definitely, you can use MDF. Check my other PC case made of wood, I used some MDF to make some of the panels :)

    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 ;)

      Thanks for the tips :) I need to get a stone to sharpen my chisels, and a lot of practice too

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

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

      I agree, it has a cool 70s garage built look.

      Coreteks ya sure. I forgot I changed out the motherboard and it wasn't hooked up but it's almost ready to take pictures lol. hardrive isn't plugged in because the ide port on the board is blocked by the powersupply but it's the original design


    • Coreteks
      Coreteks  7 months ago

      Defo! Youtube deletes any links in the comments though.. do you use twitter? I'm @coreteks on twitter. I'll repost your pics so others can get inspired!


    • Victor McDonald
      Victor McDonald 7 months ago

      Coreteks lol. everything acctully fit really nice the old motherboard I used fit perfectly in the side. the power supply fit right beside the motherboard and the hardrive went more in the front. I wanted to cut the side that opens and staple plastic wrap on it for a window. everything is held together by zip ties except the fan in the front. it's alittle run down looking now though. and it's a challage trying to keep the gpu held up. I could try to send pics if you want.

      Really?! Cardboard is underrated for sure. I might try something like that. I would probably convert the xboxone into a PC case also XD

    i might give it a go myself

    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.
