Lightbulb Building a Custom Wood Case (looking for some exp tips)

Ok, the reason I'm going to build the case with wood is because it would be cheaper (in my case) because my dad works in construction and can help me out. (+ I'm a college kid, and money pays). So all I wanted to know was if you guys know any problems I may run into + this is my first time building a computer... so I'd like to avoid biting off more than I can chew...

Well here's what I'm planning on using for components:
(it's not the dream team of components, but it should get the job done)
Intel Core i3-530 2.93GHz
Gigabyte Micro GA-H55M-S2H Motherboard
Corsair CMPSU-PSU 650w
Corsair DDR3 4GB
OCZ Vertex Series 30GB SSD (used for a boot drive)
Western Digital 500GB Hard Drive (used for media and larger files)
LITE-ON Blu-Ray/DVD/CD Reader
Thermaltake CPU Cooler
HDTV TV Tuner Card

I can post some pictures of the cooling system/case design if you guys want, but I'd really like to just here some input from you guys. (visit the Link below for some concept designs)
