Flightline is a PC inspired by the Wright Brothers Memorial at Kill Devil Hills, NC. The case consists of 167 pieces of quilted maple, maple burl and mahogany veneer laid over a frame of 1/16” aircraft-grade birch plywood.

Yes it is a computer. It is a Thin Mini-ITX motherboard with a Core i7 processor. It was designed for use in All-In-One PCs to compete with the Mac. I’ve done different things with it. :)

I just assumed all woodworkers computers looked something like this. lol

That is incredible work. You can sure cram parts into unusual dimensions. The sideways cpu cooler is neat, where did you find that thing?

The cooler is made by Intel for this specific application. Last time I looked it was the only solution available.

Totally nice project.
I just love a wood case and have built two of them myself.
It’s really fun to make something way of in left field compared to most builds.
