Wat up OCN,
I have was given a large amount of pitch pine boards from an old friend and thought these would be nice for a case mod. So I want your ideas for it! I have quite a bit of steel at home and welding and cutting equipment. I also have woodworking tools and access to a laser cutter and engraver for pexi glass. Which ever design is picked I will have the creators user name engraved on the case somewhere and the OCN logo if thats okay with the owners.

I will more than likley have a poll after I get a few designs in. Pics of the wood coming soon.

As promised here are the pictures of the wood. (forgive the quality their from my HD2) The tongue and groove would be planed off or used if multiple boards are together.

I've seen a few pretty nice wooden case mods. Having ZERO wood working skills, it's always been of interest to me to see what people can do.

I have a few questions that may help me and others spark some creative ideas for you.

What is the general equipment you will be using? Form factor? Air or water cooling? Multiple GPU's?

Are you looking for something to put on display or sit in the corner of a room?

Basic square/rectangle shape, or open to something open and abstract?

Do you want it to be a Tower, or any shape goes?

how do you want to Finnish the wood? Lacquer, stain, wood wax, natrual.

I built a pine desk and stained it "Minwax/Ebony"then finished it with semi-gloss
Lacquer and the Finnish is Beautiful!
Almost black but you can still see the grains. The surface is like glass.

Lacquer is a lot of work, but the final product is Amazing.



Can you put up a Pick of where it is going to be going, this would be helpful with shape and color ideas.

I dont mind what form factor it is but it would be single gpu and air cooled. As regards finishing and stuff, its all up to you guys .

Ill have pics of the location later but I have a quick update,
I was rooting through the parts bin for something and I found an AM3 motherboard ATX size so it looks as if this is going to be an amd build.
