After seeing ChrysN's Wood Kindle Case I wondered if I could make a fun cover for my small netbook. I've already made a laptop tripod which allows me to use my computer when I'm moving around in one area, but I wanted something to cover my netbook when I'm not in the Lab or when I'm out having a coffee. I found this vintage hardcover book with a bear attacking frontiersman, perfect for my netbookbook. This tidy cover can cleverly conceal your netbook to look like any other book in your library, here's a short video showing the cover in action:
Enough talk, let's make something!
Step 1: Tools + materials
Step 2: Find appropriate book
Make sure the book you chose is slightly larger than your netbook in all dimensions (width, depth and height). My netbook measures 260mm(w)x184mm(d)x30mm(h) [10.25"x7.25"x1.25"], the pictures show how much room I had left around the netbook when comparing it to the hardcover book. You want a snug fit, so try and find a book that closely matches your netbook.
