Now I'm doing   Raspberry pi Cases in laminated birch wood ...

Taking advantage of the flexibility of wood, I get all the pieces together without using glue or screws.
The corners have holes to use Lego bricks and integrated into a larger structure. :idea:
I make and sell on the Amazon and Ebay. ;)

I think I like these the best - the burnt edges of the wood look pretty stylish... :)

Are you using the RPi to control the robot?

Can we get some details on your setup. ;)

Cedar wood is very expensive and I only use it to make guitar necks. ;)

For birch not go so burned.

No, I think I expressed myself poorly.

The robot we use, it's my laser machine,
which logically is a robot with your computer, motors, etc.

Now I use a PC running XP to draw the pieces.
  laser machine for the PC is more like a printer in the LPT port.

But it would be interesting to do a project where a
RASPBERRY PI with a motor controller board, sensors, etc. could be used on CNC machines.

Thats why I was asking it would just be so cool having a Raspberry running a machine making cases for a Raspberry, Recursive case making. :D
