Topic tags/keywords: phone live edge resin

I’ve ordered a few cases from these folks and started to wonder if I could maybe just make my own. I’ve never worked with resins before and I also wonder what special machinery I might need beyond the common stuff.

Do you think it would be way more than it was worth to pull off? or would it be a fun project?

I don’t see why you couldn’t just use an epoxy to fill the voids, and sand everything flush. I think this would be a fun project. I wonder how the top and bottom case pieces fit together to keep it on the phone.

Well I don’t have a live edge case (yet), but I have one of their slim cases and that has a rubber or plastic frame that fits around the phone and the wood is inlaid into that. I’ll be interested to see how the live edge cases work. I’m guessing I’m not sophisticated enough to make a plastic frame.

It looks like you would need a small CNC router, but I could be wrong. :)
