Just realized that although I had shared some pictures and video in various blogs/threads, I never actually posted this one as a project…
I entered a case design contest for an Intel NUC (really tiny computer). The contest was to design a case to hold the hardware, and then Intel picked 5 winners. The winners of the design contest were then sent the hardware from Intel and got 2 months to build their case (interestingly, this case was the only one done in the 2-month timeframe, the contest was extended for the rest of the participants).
The case construction is 1/8” plywood with some quilted Sapele veneer (hammer veneered). The rest is solid Wenge and Curly Maple. Finish is a couple coats of shellac.
In the last picture, it’s shown next to the original case the computer came in, and that measures 5”x5”x2”.
