Leather bound Chipboard?

Lessons learned…

I was going to use some proofgrade leather that I had, but it would require skiving which @ekla pointed out. I wasn’t prepared to do that just yet. I did have some JPP saddle material which was thin enough for my project.

I learned that super glue is not a good substitute for contact cement. It seeped into the foam and chipboard and made it hard and brittle.

I learned that super strong magnets that I had aren’t that strong.

I learned I should have left more of a gap for the folds, it might have been enough if the insert was so stiff from the glue.

I am using a rubberband to keep it shut and to hold the game inside. I am happy enough with it to not redo it.
