I love it when I see something completely new. I took carpentry class in high school, and have always enjoyed working with woods. I've never thought of using wood to construct a case, though. This is a gorgeous design, and the different woods used adds very rich and warm colors. This is the kind of computer that would look excellent on a business desk or in a country home. Great job!

The colors of the wood, dude. And the grain patterns. The pine and and cedar woods are lighter, and give it a crisp, clean look, as well as a very warm color. The mohogany and cherry, each a dark wood, are cooler, but since they're used more as the "backdrop" for the lighter woods, they actually accentuate the warmth of the box's color. The mohogany also has a very eccentric grainular pattern, giving it an exotic look.

 I have to say, I like the glass window much better than a plastic one. Yes, there's a difference, but only to those who look for it. Using glass keeps with the box's natural-element construction. It seems the only synthetic elements are inside the case.

And I'm looking at this from an artist and carpenter's point of view, not so much a functional. Wood retains much more heat than (most) metals, so cooling looks like it would be an issue if he's using more high-end parts.

I personally dislike the glass windows, the look of wood and electronics is ugly to me. I would have just kept it all wood.

how do you keep your machine grounded? with a metal case any place you touch on the case (unpainted) will ground you, and your parts.

I believe computers are grounded through the power supply.

I think wood does tend to insulate a bit more than metal, but that's still an impressive case. Kudos
