Introduction: Wood Carved Computer Case

Here is a project I have been working on the last 3 weeks. I have carved a computer out of MDF, stained it with my own mix of acrylic paint and linseed oil then finished off with a varnish. I hope you enjoy.

Very nice.

Next time you make something like this, take photos as you work through it, and post a step-by-step instructable - case mods are quite popular.

Hi there,
This case looks awesome! I can't believe its mdf.... would you share the technique you used to finish it?

Thank's, to finish the work, I use acrylic paint that artists use and apply it over the MDF face quite roughly. Then I pour boiled linseed oil over the surface and mix it all in so I can get the paint into all the nooks and crannys. After it is dry, I used a matte varnish to finish it off. I will put up a work log so you can see how I do it later today.
