Help and advice

Now I've build a few custom pc cases from metal etc but never from wood and hence why I come here to find out as much as I can , I have a rough plan of the design I want but am looking for advice such as what wood I should use what thickness is best what I should do to make it as best as I can . I am aware that good airflow is a must to stop overheating and I have worked that into my plan and feel that shouldn't be a problem but anything u could recommend to stop any added heat that would be great.
So any advice and help people could give would be great . Thanks in advance

I think you need to discuss your plan with a computer geek first. A lot of us could cover it with wood but I don't think any of us are qualified to tell you what affect it would have on the unit. A picture would also help. We would need to know what gets covered.

Personally I think it's a waste of time. Back in the old days televisions were made in a console cabinet. I think your project would be like building a nicer cabinet to transfer the components. For a little while it would be great but it would have been a lot of work for something that wouldn't last long.
