Wood Hard Case - Very Strong
After searching for ages and not finding a case that was strong enough to protect my reader from all sorts of possible damage I decided to make my own.
Even the metal ones I came across were flimsy and I could imagine a situation were a stiff object in my suitcase would put enough pressure on the side of the metal case to crack the screen.
Mine is made of a very stiff wood with internal reinforcements supporting all sides of the case. The thing is incredibly strong but also lite and attractive. I stained, lined it with very soft suede and covered the outside with super soft fine leather.
Take a look at all the pictures here:

That's very interesting.
Yvan le terrible has also made some lovely wooden cases. Here's one, now in the possession of Bob Russell, which was photographed at the last Washington meet-up:
