If i was to make a wooden case for this, i would have to buy a PI anyway to use as the template for a perfecto fitting and inspiration.
Good luck to everyone who enters though.

Is this dimension of whole case or just it's inside dimensions?
•You need to allow for the various ports to be accessible
Can I use cable extensions?
•You need to be able to mount the motherboard correctly using the mounting holes (these were added on the latest Rev 2 version)
Can I use latches or pins for mounting?

Why, that's practically priceless! (Okay, a £12.99 RRP. Or £9.09 at the moment from Amazon, 'cos it's on offer.)

Yes you can use port extensions, so long as all the original ports are usable.
You can use whatever method you want for mounting, so long as you mount it using the holes - so yes, pins or latches are fine. We're trying to avoid people just using velcro and the like ;)

Also if anyone wants any info or dimensions I have a pi and can hep with measurements or images, though I don't have any digital calipers I'm afraid. Is the £10 limit for case materials or for everything. For example if I wanted to use an m to f extension cable does that come into the cost of the case? I assume it would but I'd like to be sure.
