Sometimes people are looking for rackmount HTPC cases and I thought these were pretty cool, especially if there is any choice in wood color besides the blonde wood. There are two sizes, mini-ITX and micro-ATX. The ears can be removed and they can be used as regular desktop cases as well. Here are the specs:

D-213-MATX-WB mATX
Standard Drive Bays:
3.5" Drive (internal): 2
5.25" Drives: 1

Expansion Slots: 4 (low profile)
Material of Front Bezel: Wood
Material of Handle: Aluminum
Material of Main Chassis: Zinc-Coated Steel
Front Connector: 2x USB 2.0
Motherboard Size: 9.6 x 9.6 (microATX, mini-ITX)
Optional Fan: 80mm x2
Dimensions (WxHxD):
19.00" x 3.50" x 15.35"
482.6 mm x 88.9 mm x 389.9 mm

D-118V2-ITX-WB mITX
Standard Drive Bays: 2.5" Drive (internal): 2
Expansion Slots: 1
Material of Front Bezel: Wood
Material of Handle: Aluminum
Material of Main Chassis: Zinc-Coated Steel
Front Connector: 2x USB 2.0
Motherboard Size: 6.7 x 6.7 (mini-ITX)
Optional Fan: 40mm x3
Dimensions (WxHxD):
19.00" x 1.75" x 11.00"
482.6 mm x 44.5 mm x 279.4 mm

Notes

1. 3.5" hdd cannot be placed when expansion slot is used.
2. Standard I/O shield will NOT fit any 1U chassis.
3. Expansion slot requires riser card

They aren't available yet but they are "coming soon".

Am I blind, or are you missing a link?

If you want Mini-ITX but don't want the hassle of custom rear I/O panels, the LGX MK150 is 1.5U and accepts standard ATX I/O shields that come with the motherboard. It also uses 60mm fans with baffles that are a lot quieter than 40mm, and the faceplates are removable for easy replacement/branding/Dremel customizations (they have an LCD panel option already): http://www.lgxsystems.com/products/cases/mk150/

I can't speak to your eyesight but I have the links in there now. It took a bit to find the product pages.
