One day, I wanted to make a notebook. I liked it, so I made more. Then I got tired of it and stopped. This is an archive of the material that I published about this.
I started out with a single notebook. I published a detailed report about this original build. I made 6 notebooks overall, and created a page to present each one:
These notebooks were an open source hardware product (emphasis on open source, less so on the hard part). I collected all documentation on how to source materials and how to build them in a GitHub repository: https://github.com/hannobraun/notebooks
I also posted updates about about the process on this site, whenever I made a bit of progress that I wanted to share.
I eventually stopped making them. I didn't have the right tools, which made the process hard to control, tedious, and eventually frustrating. I didn't want to invest any more in tooling (either in the form of money or labor), so I decided to call it quits.
Overall, it was a fun experiment on how to manufacture a specific kind of product. I even sold a few, which was a nice feeling. I hope to eventually repeat that, but probably with something else.
