Once you assembled all parts, you can add some finishing touches. I rounded off all corners of the case using files and sanded the whole outside of the case. To better emphasize the wood grain/texture, I finished off my case using bio-varnish (some sort of hard wax). The pictures show the case without varnish.
- I should have made a little cut out within the top and bottom part of the frame to accomodate for the iPads power switch. It never powered on unintentionally yet, but....
- I thought about adding a strap on the open side of the case so the iPad cannot fall out, but after holding some tan colored suede to the case I decided against it. It just looks better this way. And most "toy-owners" will be especially careful with their gadget anyways.
I hope you liked this instructable and I would be glad if you would leave a comment.
