Would it be possible to make a case like yours out of wood. I know more about making with wood. The problem is the arches at the top because they would be hard to make out of wood(no pun intended)

I have seen in the pictures from your case you have a original Mac Pro . So I was wondering how tall the full size Mac Pro is.

matx should fit, it just depends on what else you are trying to cram in there with it. If water cooling is not needed, it should fit. If you want to use multiple PCIe cards, you may have to enlarge it a little. Scale it to the size you need.

My junior case is approx 5 x 11 x 11.5 inches on the interior (13x28x29cm). Add some for the top/bottom handles on the exterior dimensions.
