Hi!
I'd like to share my diy NAS enclosure that successfully works for about a few month.

Initially I've assembled parts together using Lego bricks.
Banana Pro + 2.5 hdd:

Upgraded version with heat-sink attached:

Than, I've looked around my home and found that box:

That box came from Irish Internet provider. It used before as router and TV box.

Removed all internals, and put Banana Pro plate in, I've made a small cuts for USB and LAN connectors to fit the plate more narrow:

Installed one 2.5" hdd in external housing:

Than a second drive was installed.
The diy fixes for the two drives:

One drive in place:

Two disks installed. In additional I've disassembled Xiaomi Mi Pad charger and soldered the box 220V socket directly to the charger.
Because of small space inside - to fit everything toghether I've revers Bananna Pro plate. Now CPU is bottom faced.
