Build A Light, Durable Carbon Fibre Case For Any Gadget

If you’re picky about how your phone’s case looks and feels, you can build your own tough, lightweight case at home with carbon fibre.

Cases are a great way to protect your phone (and get a great resale value), but many are bulky, don’t fit well, or just don’t exist for certain more obscure gadgets. With a bit of carbon fibre, a wooden mould, and a resin to pull it all together, you can make your own strong, lightweight protector for just about any gadget in your backpack. You’ll need a good selection of tools, like some C-Clamps, a drill, a dremel and others, but with a well-stocked toolbox and a trip to the hardware store, it shouldn’t be too difficult to do it yourself at home.
