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
-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.
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.
