Hard case for reader?

Anyone know of sites or people that create custom hard-wood cases for digital readers?

Thanks!

You know what would be the ultimate laugh?

Buying a big bound book, and hollowing it out so you could store your ebook reader in it, secret compartment style.

That would pretty much say it all wouldn't it?

Hollow Book

There is a thread or two here on Mobileread on the subject. This link shows how to make a hollow 'book';

I have a wooden box, in the shape of a book, where I sometimes store my reader together with USB cable, charger, etc.

Thanks!
Send a PM to "yvanleterrible" here at MR. He's a very skilled carpenter and has, in the past, made beautiful custom-made boxes for people.

I have see that thread...was hoping to find a web site of hard-case-covers for my Sony reader. When I travel I like it to be encased in something that wont allow anything to put pressure on its screen.

Here is the one I made, but was hoping to find something a bit more refined.

This guy on etsy creates beautiful cases, but he'd probably have to do a custom-sized one for the Sony readers, since the Kindle 2/Nook are much taller.
