I got put on the spot, a 2 month deadline to complete 25-30 full leather design clamshells.
Nothing like a bit of pressure...right??
This will be first, a serious test of edition work, and second, a design endurance nightmare.
So...just for added spice, I thought I'd do it in public, detailing most steps, where possible, along the way.
Design conception and execution will be left to me.
.........Bottom tray cutting for double-walled clamshell.The base is cut, then the walls cut and glued together in a step-joint of a board thickness.(all clamshells made at PDB are double-walled,thin walls are useless)
The trays are made, sanded smooth, then the outside is lined, for extra strength and stability.
