John Park’s Maker’s Notebook

John Park’s Maker’s Notebook

MAKE contributor, and host of the upcoming Make: TV, John Edgar Park, is digging his Maker’s Notebook:

I’m not sure how exactly I’m going to modify mine, but I’m interested in cutting out some of those rectangles on the front, since they’ve got a raised “perforation” to them, they’re just begging for it. I’d also like to electrify one, and do something with magnets…

I’m using this one to do sketches and note taking for Make Magazine projects, appropriately. I’m very proud of my kustom pinstripe lettering. OK, it’s actually stickers from a Mini Cooper ad, but doesn’t it look neat-o?!
