Raspberry Pi 4B Plywood DIY Case
Read the full title Raspberry Pi 4B Plywood DIY Case
This kit includes the laser-cut plywood and acrylic components you need to build your Pi into a standalone Desktop Computer. Please note that this case is supplied as a flat-pack kit and is NOT ASSEMBLED. You will need to glue it together using PVA wood glue or epoxy adhesive.
This case is designed to house a Raspberry Pi 4B and a low-profile Ice Tower (both not included). You'll also need two additional 40mm fans for the front, an optional backward port adaptor from an Argon case to direct the HDMI and audio ports to the back, and there is room in the bottom to add an optional NVME drive.
The case uses the mounting hardware included in the Ice Tower kit to mount the Pi within the case.
Here are the step by step instructions to put your case together - https://www.the-diy-life.com/laser-cut-plywood-raspberry-pi-case/
External - 105mm x 105mm x 65mm
Internal - 95mm x 95mm x 60mm
Each Kit Includes:
3mm Laser Cut Plywood Panels (8 Pieces)
1 x Clear Acrylic Side Panel
12 x Button Head Screws For The Side Panel & Fans
8 x Nuts For The Fans
You will need a basic 2.5 hex key to install the screws and a small wrench or needle-nose pliers to install the brass standoffs which come with the Ice Tower.

This little case was the perfect project for my 10 year old son! The case looks so cool and the instructions were easy enough. Two of the screws were a little tight for the nuts in the fan, but with a little gentle persuasion they worked fine in the end. The end result brings a smile to your face! Great kit, well worth the money and I can’t believe how fast it all arrived from Australia!
Really fun little case that makes putting a pi on a shelf cleaner and purposeful. It seems to work well with the heat sink. I've got both vertical and horizontal models, so I may try both and see which looks best. All in all, really nice print quality. I'd be willing to also pay a little more for a 100% solid infill as an upgrade option too. Another neat option might be to make them linkable, side by side, so you could put them together in a cluster. and have the "inner" side panel removed so you could move air across the heat sinks.
Absolutely fantastic!! The kit came with everything I needed to build this mini desktop case for the Raspberry Pi 4 and it looks phenomenal! Thank you SO much Michael! Superb quality for an unbeatable price!
A little bit of a challenge to build, making sure to not strip the plastic threads and getting the final SD Card in place. Suggest cut a hole for the MicroSD slot so you can change the SD card without having to take it all apart again. The exact code to get a nice display setting showing IP CPU Temp usage took a lot of time figuring out what code generates what I want. I am here in Japan and the Kit arrived in reasonable time minus some Hex screws and the fan. Over all good kit, my friends like it. Next Version should allow for NVMe SSD board to be mounted underneath the Pi.
