Handmade paper-pulp electronics enclosure by Sivan Toledo.

I really like this idea from Sivan Toledo. Although labor-intensive, the price is certainly right and the results are, IMHO, as good-looking as many purchased enclosures and with much more character. The mold is formed from scrap cardboard and covered with the wet paper mixture, and there are lots of finishing options. [via Hack a Day]

    This would be great for creating a mold for an enclosure, just cover it in release wax. then lay it up in fiberglass.

  3. I like the organic lines. This would be especially nifty looking when marbleized or done in some other faux texture.
