Designer and photographer Stephen Whitehead came up with this elegant wooden case by cutting and sanding two sheets of plywood before sticking them together with dome head bolts and stainless washers.
Alas, there is only one version of the case in existence, and Stephen doesn't have plans to commercialise it.
"I don't have the equipment for mass production and I don't think many people would be willing to pay what the time and effort would be worth to make them!" he told ZDNet.

This laser-cut, finger-jointed case — dubbed 'Bramble Pi' — is a self-assembly kit made out of birch plywood. Germany-based designer Nick also makes laser-engraved custom cases. The Bramble Pi is available on Etsy for €12.
A sleek acrylic alternative to the wooden cases is Built to Spec's Raspberry Pi enclosure kit. Priced at $12.50 (£7.99), custom variations are available. The assembly instructions look a trifle daunting, but then, if you've bought a Raspberry Pi, you're probably already up for a challenge.
