What do you guys think of a wooden case?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I was just wondering what you guys think of wooden cases. I know its all up to me but I'm just curious what you guys think. Me and my friend are thinking of building a PC with a custom wooden case. Do you guys think its ugly, stupid, nice, or cool. Thank you for your thoughts on this topic.

i like them when they are done right. normally, a pc case is almost going to look like a pc case and is going to stand out...but if you craft something out of wood and finish it nicely, it can fit in better with the furniture..especially if you have a wood desk

if you want to keep more of a tech look..you can add in a little bit of aluminum




this is a pretty sweet approach too



but would look better stained/cleared imo

Jacobthemaller's partial wood HTPC build is incredibly nice looking, in my opinion. Even after being built in 2011, it still holds up for me.
