Is a Wooden Enclosure for Electronics a Good Idea? Answered
I am in the process of converting my ATX power supply into a bench power supply. My PSU's standard case is made from 1mm steel with various ventilation holes, there is also a 120*120mm fan.
However, the circuit board is strangely positioned within the case and there isn't enough space for what I want to add.
I would like to take all of the electronics and rehouse them in a home-made wooden case. My question is; Is this a sensible thing to do?
I plan to use 5mm pine stripwood to remake the box, but slightly bigger and better arranged. I would still fit the fan and drill plenty of ventilation holes.
Do I need to take any extra precautions if using wood, or is it just a really bad idea.
Thanks in advance.
