Stained hardwood case for the Bus Pirate v4

Posted on Monday, June 11th, 2012 in Bus Pirate, cases by DP

Here’s a stained maple-wood case for the Bus pirate v4, milled by Vince at the Xerocraft hackerspace in Tuscan Arizona. The Bus Pirate is an open source hacker multi-tool that talks to electronic stuff. It’s got a bunch of features an intrepid hacker might need to prototype their next project.

The Bus Pirate is sold as a bare board, which puts it at risk of shorts from messy work surfaces with conductive things like paper clips and staples laying around.  I’ve decided I really like this device, so I figured I’d make a case to protect it.

Check out our workshop video about cases, and many posts with community built cases for our projects.

You can get a Bus Pirate v4 for $40, including worldwide shipping.

Via the forum.

    Cool, nearly identical to mine but I did not bother staining, and used white oak….
