Looking at making a wooden mATX case

So I purchased a mATX LGA 2011 board and a e5- 2630v2 from Aliexpress for ~90 USD, and I want to make a somewhat portable and small enclosure for it. I currently have the motherboard tray from a socket 478 P4 HP computer for mounting, and a design for 1/2" plywood construction.

As for the chinese 2011 motherboard, I think i'll make a review post at some point once I finish the system. That being said I will note I was unable to mod the bios to unlock the memory timing controls so that will stay at 1600 CAS 29 unfortunately (so much for the rated 1866 CAS 10)

If you see any suggestions of changes I can make let me know. The PCI cutouts are missing because (s)Ketchup has a couple of bugs with hollow shapes and the order in which they are drawn. My intent is to have the rear I/O being the top of the case such that there is no need for front I/O save whatever I feel like adding to the side. the dimensions are ~ 7x13x14 inches on the inside (21 liters) and ~25 liters on the outside)

Small EDIT: will likely be swapping which sides get the full edges for construction reasons

I also plan to mount an arctic alpine 7 PWM using some 3d printed mounts when I get back to school, however a 212 EVO only adds ~ an inch to the width considering the width of the power supply. I know I could shorten the case height by a bit, but I want to leave it open to future expansion above the GTX 950 I currently have for it (probably an RX 580 so I can use it for VR if I can find one that isn't stupidly priced)
