A quick step by step on all the fabrication for this box

Laser Cutting

Once I had all the files ready, I laser cut the various layers of the box with 1/8th plywood.

Circuits

Next I soldered the circuits to go inside the book. At some point later, I realised I needed them out of the book, so there’s the entire circuit on the wall.

Light and Button Modules

This involved soldering individual pieces as well as 3d printing the modules that hold them

Making a page enclosure

Each page needed to be it’s own enclosure. This was mainly to hide the circuits to ensure there are no exposed wires.  Each page had 3 layers which were sanded and screwed together.

Fabric Hinging

After testing with metal and fabric hinges I had decided on fabric hinges. So, after my yellow canvas arrived, I began binding the entire book. IMG_20170419_163119IMG_20170419_193236

Sticking the content

Since I couldn’t find sticker paper which I liked, I ended up getting some nice print outs and sticking the content to the wood with spray on glue.  ( I thought this would be the fun part, I was so wrong)

Almost Done!

This is the current state of the book, I have some more fabrication that is incomplete. Additionally, there are small details I want to add, but this is it for today!
