If you want to play around with the Official Raspberry Pi Display / touchscreen, you're going to want to mount it to something or put it in a case. I wanted a "console" style case that would hold everything up and give me a good viewing angle for the display, and I was a bit surprised at the lack of options out there, so I designed this case.
The enclosure is laser cut from premium maple laminate plywood, which makes it easy to assemble (and re-assemble when you need to - no glue or blind fasteners!) and has an access port on the left to get to the USB/Ethernet ports of the Pi when assembled for a keyboard or other USB device. There is also a small knockout in the back for convenient routing of the USB power cable, with thoughtful touches like slots for zip ties to make it easy to secure cables from undue strain.
Being wood, it is also easy to add your own holes with a drill if you want to mount your own peripherals to the case. It comes unfinished (bare wood) which you can leave as-is as shown in the photos or even stain/paint to suit you!
Mounting the touchscreen to the case is accomplished by a special 3D printed bracket (blue part in the photo) that I also designed, which is included with the kit. Using four screws, the bracket will hold the display/Pi securely in place and against the front plate of the cabinet.
All assembly hardware is included with the kit along with assembly instructions.
When assembled, the case is 24cm tall, 21cm wide, and 13cm deep (about 9.5" x 8" x 5").
Note: The kit does not include the Raspberry Pi Display or Raspberry Pi!
