I made a wooden case for my Raspberry Pi at TechShop Pittsburgh (techshop.ws). Having wooden case is great, because it looks great, smells good and pleasant to the touch =)

Step 1: Find Materials

Materials needed:
-Birch or Oak Plywood 1/8'' - Local art supplier
-Acrylic plastic 1/8'' - HOME DEPO
-Nylon 6/6 Machine Screws - www.amazonsupply.com
-Metric Nylon 6/6 Hex Nuts - www.mcmaster.com

I also did a delivery box for it from thin cardboard I found in local art store.

You can also order this case from my shop on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/MyPiCase?ref=search_shop_redirect

Step 2: Cut

You can find CorelDraw templates for case and box attached to this post.

Cutting hints:
1. Next settings worked for me (Trotec laser cutter):
Birch - standard plywood settings, but 1 run for cutting
Plastic - standard settings, but faster cutting speed and lower power
Cardboard - Edging: 90, 60, 1000. Cutting: 100, 4, 5000, 1 run

2. After cutting some of the parts could be soiled and you can clear them up with Hydrogen peroxide or Acetone.

Enjoy!

Hey, I'm trying to build it, but I'm pretty sure there are some of the wooden layers missing on your file... (The layers in which the HDMI plug comes in, etc)...

Would you please post the case layout as a PDF file or some other printable format? I don't have access to a laser cutter, so I'd like to print the layout and use a jeweler's saw or scroll saw to cut it out.
I love the design, It looks like an improved version of the Pibow
