How-To: Papier-Mâché Enclosure

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]
