My goal with this project was to make a Xbox which was 1" thick. After 6 months of on and off work, this is the result:
The case is made out of 1/8" thick (3mm) polycarbonate and consists of 4 panels. 3 of the panels were held together with epoxy and plastic welder to form the base. The top panel is supported by 4 posts which it screws into. All of the panels were made with the usual tools, so it doesn't quite have that laser-cut precision, but I think it came out alright.
Bondo was used to fill in any gaps between the base panels and the whole thing was sprayed with a few coats of primer and Krylon Fusion. Here are some pics of the motherboard and components:
Since the case itself accounted for 1/4" of thickness, the motherboard and the rest of the components had to be 3/4" thick or thinner. One of the problems that I ran into while trying to do this was the IDE cable. I just didn't have the room to fold the cable to make the 90* turn. It may have only added 1/16", but that was too much, so I rewired it with a 90* turn.
Here are some comparison pics of it next to a standard Xbox:
The standard Xbox case is about 3.5" tall.
