This is what it say's right on that site,"It is basically a thin wood paneling that covers an existing case.

Wood would more than likely splinter to bend it around those corners. You could soak it and bend it gently that way, but then you'd have severely raised grain. You'd have to sand it down, but OH! It's a tiny sheet of wood! OH NO! Don't call me a noob.

oh, and btw, the unstained machine below is a completely different computer.

****! Nice find. I realllllly like the idea of a wooden case. The orangey stain is ugly..ida stuck with clearcoat. but still very cool. They look too much like the initial case though. They need to be more original.
Ya i got bored so i started looking up stupid **** and i found that and a refridgerator PC! no joke!

Here's what it say's right from that site.
Quote:
First the wood is put in to a tank of hot water for a few days in order to soften it. Then the wood is sliced in to thin sheets and the backing is pressed to the wood with a 3-ton heat press. Lacquer is then applied to the wood to give it a nice shiny look and protect it from the nasty elements that this world of ours has to offer. Once the wood is treated in this manor it is then applied to the case. This actually gives the appearance that it is made completely from wood. It is basically a thin wood paneling that covers an existing case.

it's hilarious how it's obvious people aren't reading the text at all and start talking as if they know exactly how it was built.

Way to be folks........way to be
