I wanted to upgrade my media center (RPi B+ with Xbian) to something a bit nicer, more stable and more accessible than just the RPi in a basic plastic case.

Project Description

I built an enclosure out of wood with aluminum front and rear panels.

All of the connections I wanted to use were broken out from the pi with panel-mount extension cables.

A lot of the electronic parts came from Core Electronics:

Enclosure materials include some marine plywood (Bunnings) merbau strip cut from scrap for the front edging and aluminium "propellor" plate (Bunnings).

Here are some shots of the build:
