I recently acquired a free broken laptop and have been diagnosing its repair. The keyboad and screen were shot and it needs a charger. The parts should be in this week, after which I’ll have a tool capable of word processing at least. This has put me on a line of thought of building a case for the laptop which would allow me to carry the laptop, a mouse and the charger.

Making Your Own Hardware, a Hammered Copper Finger Pull for the Tilt Front Laptop Computer Desk

This is something I enjoy doing, and it gives my work another niche to offer. I would not say that I am a coppersmith, as there is a lot that I don’t know about the process.
