This I would would like to see as I do enjoy wood working myself.

I would be using some thing like self tapping screws and glue.

Router will be great help with that. It's better than a using a chizzle. However careful using a router as they have a habbit of kicking. I nearly injured myself a few months back with one.

I would also use the router to curve the edges of the case too.

I would be going for a lighter wood, and maybe using some varnish on it.

The rear panel will be tricky as you would want some thing thin and yet durable. You might be able to cut it down to the right size, but it's not going to be strong.

Thats why i suggested using the motherboard tray and just set it into the wooden case, only has 6 spaces for PCI slots though.... Along with them cd drive bays he can buy.... And ive been thinking about building a computer case of wood in our schools woodshop in 11th grade (next year) out of Oak, but im not sure if our teacher would let me, since i would be using a few parts that are allready made, such as a motherboard tray with the back panel and a cd drive bay and HDD drive bay......

Tell me about it. I have had them kick. My woodwork teacher injured himself on a router a while back. But i might use the table router which doesnt kick back.

The lathe also kicks back badly. I have had it kick the tool back into my shoulder and it gave me a nasty bruise.

What about oiled?

Try letting a table saw kick the wood back into you >_< That will cause some damage to a certain place of the body......

no, the table saw in our room isnt on that level. It seems better than a hand router because its easier to keep the wood in place.

That is about a fun a broken rib.
I know this from personal experience.

You have to be careful with table saws when they kick back.
And pray you don not hit a nail.
