Sorry for not documenting the build process with photos, but I've attached a few of the finished product.
I followed (in part) this guide
, with a few modifications. Found a nice notebook that had been sitting on my shelf for 20+ years (!) that had the right size.
Added a little string to help lift the kobo out.
Also added a moleskine type rubber band to keep the case closed. Once that was all done I decided that some fabric lining would be nice. I knew the glue would somewhat mess the fabric up but that doesn't bother me.
I padded the lining of the case "lid" with a bit of tissue for extra screen protection.
Pretty happy with the end result, could have been a bit more careful with the glue. Maybe next time
Your the second person to do so. Both look good btw. And what a way to confuse people when you ask them what 2000+ books look like and you show them that. Any way Its actually quite nice.
thanks for sharing
