Nothing but Audio amplifier box.
Except for the bottom , that is 3mm thick aluminum plate, all made of wood.
The front panel is a horse chestnut, side and top plate are birds eye maple.
A knob and inlay are African block wood.

Nice! Question: have you considered the heat generated effects on the woods? What audio components are you going to place in the box?

The contents are Raspberry Pi 3 with Pifi DAC, a digital amplifier and two switching regulators.
So far the heat generated most comes from the CPU of Raspberry Pi3. But the audio program running on the CPU consumes only 10-20% of CPU power.
I believe the heat effect against the woods is minimal.

Well done sir. I hope it doesn’t get hidden in any sort of rack! It appears to not have any forced cooling. Nice and quiet, schweet.
