Minimalist wooden PC case

Jeffrey Stephenson's famous for his elaborate deco-esque PC cases. This time, he's gone for a more modernist vibe with the Level Twelve.
Level Twelve is a Teak and Birds Eye Maple minimalist-styled computer system with hidden vent ducting and a separate self-powered USB peripheral system ... The computer itself is located in the Birds Eye Maple box and is fully self-contained. It could be pulled out of the enclosure while it is operating.
Construction photos and a peek at the back are at his website. [Slipperyskip] Read the rest
