    there will be two separate decks in upper mATX mainboard and control panel, in lower PSU HDD and DVD. All wires will go through the posts.
    For material i use wood, but later will paint it to look like metal.

    It's almost a shame to paint that, I like how it looks already. I personally would stain and varnish that, but that's just my preference. I can't wait to see how the paint job turns out though, so good luck when you get to that part.

    Nice idea with the PVC pipe posts by the way. What did you use to cut the holes for them? I'd like borrow that idea since I'm planning on building a wooden PC.

    Also, just because I'm curious; What do you plan on using for the handles?

    Cool so far, but you would've gotten extra props and rep++ from me if you bent the wood to make the frame. ;)
