The enclosure comes as 6 laser cut acrylic pieces, 4 plastic standoffs, 8 hex-nuts and 8 1/2″ 4-40 screws. Assembly is easy, and requires only a Phillips screwdriver. Once assembled, the box has lovely engraved ends with cut-outs for the DC power, Ethernet, microSD card, USB host and USB debug ports.
The ends are even bone shaped – they act as a bumper to keep the attachment screws from scratching your desk.

And I just not half an hour ago ordered a beaglebone. Now I am gonna have to wait for my next order to get one of these 🙂
Wow … that’s the kind of effort that really puts this place in it’s own league. Great job on this!
Very nice and attractive case. Now if I can only find a tin big enough for it 😉
any plans for a nice enclosure like this for the arduino w/ethernet shield?
Gorgeous! Love it! *pulls out wallet*
