This was my first 'from-scratch' case. It made with a pine frame and red oak trim, with a custom made (by my brother) stained glass (the logo of an old, defunct skate company, H-Street). Took me about 5 months to build using hand tools only (other then a dremel for cutting the plexi). The pics aren't great, as they don't really capture the richness of the grain etc... I will likely need to do a few fixes as the case tends to run about 34C, so I need to just fix up the exhaust a bit.
