Regulated power supply with wood and plywood.

Hey, thanks for all of your comments.
I based on this schematic and generally it’s exacly the same project. I add termistor to control fan speed.
I attached more photos. Some things are to improve and change, for example additional usb slot at front panel, and some holes for better ventilation.
Case is glued two boards and as you can see the top cover is also board with four screw.
Maybe wooden case is not very efficient but i really like wood and combine wood with electronic.

Real nice. It sure looks a lot better than the box I made for mine out of paneling!!
I like the digital readout on it too.

Nice work on it!!

Very nice! Do you have a schematic for the circuit? What voltage range? Is there a rectification circuit, or are you powering using a DC source?

Have seen some made from computer power supplies but not sure if this is one of those or not. sorry!

This is a very nice housing for an electronic power supply.

Nice case and front panel, love the concept!

Lots of questions: voltage range, max current, switcher or linear, regulation specs? Schematic available?

Looking good, but I’m also curious what’s inside…...and how it’s made.
