    Thumbs Up Watch Case idea

    Hey all,

    A few weeks back I saw a post from Brad15470 with a picture of his solar G's charging outside. They were in this very elegant aluminum case which he said he got from a hardware store. I thought it was a great idea and put it in the back of my mind as a possible future project. Well, I happened to go to my local Home Depot to get some 2x4's for a repair project at home and decided to take a look for this case. I found it almost on the way out. There were a couple of different colors including blue and red, but I decided on the black. I got some foam and silk from a local fabric store and put this together in 2 hours.

    Thanks for the idea Brad15470!:thanks

    Thanks for the heads up pipes. Actually I used Magna-Tac which is meant for fabrics and foam. It worked great. :thanks

    All I can say is WOW!

    I've been trying to solve the G-case problem myself, and have spent way more time "crafting" and didn't come close to looking as good as that! Way to go!

    Hi Javier,

    Your welcome,

    WOW your case looks better than mine; the black looks very cool; having your "G"s all in one place does make it easy.

    Hi Brad -

    I wish I would have known. I once had a stack of G-SHOCK stickers whilst living in Japan but gave them all away

    I shall remember next time I go through the boxes in-case I find one as It would look awesome on the front

    Maybe Sjors has a spareB-)
