Welcome to the forum. Nice first post!

This is a great case you made, well done. To make it perfect, you ought to shorten the bottom screw so the head sits flush, like the top one though. Still, I like the materials you used better than the bland faux leather Sony uses for their covers.

Thnx,
yes I am just waiting to get to my Dremel. I just guessed it was finished enough to show the world.

It is functional and everything, but the best thing I like about it that it is personal and unique...

That looks great. What did you use inside the fabric to make it stiff?

Even better, would you be willing to provide a parts list and instructions? Looks outstanding!

well,
like I said I don't have pictures of the whole process, and this would be useless without pictures :-)

If you take a look at any book binding tutorial, I think you will understand what I did different than a normal book binding.
This is a good tutorial: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-...Hardback-Book/

I have a cad drawing you can download on my site, of the bracket that's in the middle of the case.

If I make another one, I'll make sure to photograph the whole process and make a tutorial :-)
