thanks chaps.

next update comes on friday, when i cut the other side, and i start to make cutting slots to house the bottom and back.

im not sure on the finsh yet, it will have green lighting, but i dunno wether to satin it with just a danish oil and leave it, its naturl birch look, or do it uber dark, almost aubigine/walnutty colour.

also i get to buy some more parts for my pc, im goin for silent, so seasonic 430w psu, silent case fans, and a load of dampaning fan thingys

lil update here, i routed grooves along the back and bottom, also up the front and a rebate along the top:

i sliped in some scrap 220mm wide ply to see how it looks

i may do it a lil thinner, trouble is i want a decent amount of space behind the mobo, for the cables, and it has to be atleast 6.5" wide to accomidate my screen

Looking good. Although I've never heard of a wooden case, seems interesting
