Designer in Baltimore, MD
I’m a writer and designer. I made seven of these EDC kits as gifts. The pages were removed from a hardcover book and replaced with a letterpress job case inspired basswood-and-rubber interior to cradle the tools. Neodymium magnets embedded in the wood hold the book closed when in transit. Instructable here to if you want to build your own.
