Binder Tome

Posted by Fallon Foster on

This order's been on my docket in one way or another since June.  The client wanted a binder in the same style as the old spellbook-y toolboxes I used to make.  I'd figured I could utilize the new printer to improve on the old pattern quite a bit but, among other things, that meant doing a lot of tight-tolerance modeling.  The print bed is just shy of 11" square and since letter paper is 11" tall the binder needed to be just a bit larger than that.  So any of the structural parts needed to be printed in two parts...

This was the first toolbox to use lambskin for the shell and I'm really happy with how it came out.  These toolboxes are pretty popular around the holidays and I've already received another order or two for more.

Toolboxes shipped

Posted by Fallon Foster on

These were two separate orders that came in weeks apart but just happened to wind up with similar specs.  One will be a gift for a graduate and a black-gold scheme and the other is an anniversary gift made to mimic the original prototype.  Because they were delayed a few weeks with all the moving I included some complimentary Initiative tabs when the boxes finally shipped.
