Ever since I made my first circuit (a crystal radio) some twenty years ago, I have faced the problem of packaging the finished circuit. The methods I will describe can sensibly replace the aluminium or diecast boxes, the 'project boxes' sold by rnany of the mail order outlers, and at the same time provide very realistic cases tailor-made to your projects requirements, looking just like (or sometimes better) than the 'real thing'. It is perhaps worth mentioning that I reach Design & Technology in a secondary school (ages 11-18), and that my colleagues and I use this technique with our pupils aged 14 and above. The outstanding results obtained by these beginners should spur many of the readers of this magazine on to have a go themselves.
