The HTPC Case:

Having an HTPC case you won’t want to hide.  Imagine a time when electronics were not hidden away, but instead were on display!  They were part of the décor, they were furniture in your home. In a bygone era, radios and record players were proudly displayed on or in wooden cabinets, adding a touch of elegance to the room. These pieces were not just functional devices but were also decorative, reflecting the owner’s taste and style.

At Dovetails and Stitches, we believe that the beauty and warmth of wood can enhance the appeal of your electronic devices. Our custom wood HTPC cases are designed with this philosophy in mind, bringing the lost art of integrating electronics into furniture back to life and making your home theater PC more than just a black box.

Our skilled craftsmen create unique HTPC cases that blend seamlessly into your home theater setup. From sleek and modern designs to vintage and classic styles, our cases are tailored to match your taste and fit your specific requirements.

Home Theater PC Case, what are they?

Home theater PCs, or HTPCs, are becoming more popular as people seek to streamline their entertainment systems. These devices are small, quiet, and designed to fit into your home theater setup seamlessly. They are built to handle multimedia tasks such as playing videos, streaming content, and displaying images.

An HTPC case (home theater PC case) is the enclosure that houses the components of your HTPC. It’s designed to blend in with your existing furniture and decor. Unlike typical computer cases, HTPC cases are often smaller and more compact, making them perfect for use in smaller spaces. They are also built with noise reduction in mind, so you can enjoy your movies and music without being distracted by the sound of a loud fan.

At Dovetails and Stitches, we take things one step further by building custom HTPC cases out of wood and veneer. Our goal is to create a piece of furniture or an accessory that not only functions as a computer but also looks like it belongs in your home. We combine the functionality of modern electronics with the beauty and craftsmanship of traditional furniture-making techniques. I think we should mention that our co-founder does own a gaming PC in a modern LIAN LI case full of unicorn puke RGB but even that case is getting transitioned to a more subtle and purpose built case.
