You spent weeks—months, maybe—developing your circuit. Doodling. Drafting. Breadboarding. Perfboarding. Designing and etching that PCB. Your work deserves a presentation—a case, a control panel, a software UI—worthy of all the hard work that went inside. At MAKE, we’ve seen thousands of electronics projects over the years with enclosures made of everything from paper to platinum. Here are just a few of our all-time favorites in wood, metal, other natural materials, and plastics. If you’re planning a project box, and seeking inspiration, you’ve come to the right place.
