05 Feb 2016: EOMA68 15.6in Libre Laptop Prototype bamboo panels
With kind assistance from Lilyana, two of the bamboo panels were cut out and have been placed into the casework. As this is the very first time that this has been attempted, already it has become clear that there will need to be some improvements - more of an inset for the bamboo to "bite" into and rest against, along its edges. For the main panels, so that disassembly (out-of-warranty repairs) is possible, there is a specific requirement to avoid gluing the panels in place. Double-sided tape is the much-preferred attachment method, and that is possible even with this first prototype.
