This is my third computer case build. It features watercooling, an aluminum skeleton and a maple and koa shell that I joined with Japanese hand tools. The wood case has not a single drop of glue or any screws yet it can be completely taken apart.

Welcome to LJ and thanks for posting this great looking case. I’m with Dyno360 – How do the tenons cross through each other?

Nick, Welcome to LJ.

You’ve done a VERY nice job on the design AND with the execution. Could you possibly tell (or show) how you get into it for maintenance? Thanks in advance.

Very nice computer case. Very classy.
I have never seen one made of wood before..and water cooled? I never knew that anyone put radiators in computers also…or is that your idea?

Like it! Now regretting that my computers are all stashed way underneath desks, ‘cause I’d put something like this in the middle of the room!

Thanks for the warm welcome guys. As far as the construction goes, to see how the entire thing was done, you can just go here but I will post some pictures as well.

The joint is essentially a mortise and tenon with a mortise cut into the tenon and another tenon that locks into it. This is what it looks like outside of the vertical member:

One of the “tenons” that you see is actually a plug. This is the view looking into the joint:

The tenons:

Thanks again!
