We have some clear sheets from TVs.

I might have some offcuts.

We supply the sides from computer tower style cases. Am using one at 
present to enclose a PSU.

We some copper heatsinks and some 3mm or so copper busbars we could 
donate to a worthwhile project.

One kid has modelled up a fender telecaster body in fusion and just finished cutting it (complete with , string holes, surface countours perfect cutouts for all the components and wire channels) out of a thick piece of pine “butcher board”.   I’ve been cutting stuff out of “boat board” from dotmar’s dumpster.  I love the stuff, but they don’t throw it out very often.
