so ive been hunting around for a skin for my playbook, didnt want something that would interfere with the charging cradle. the only option that i could see is the bodyguardz carbon fibre skin (BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber for BlackBerry PlayBook | BlackBerry PlayBook Protective Films | CrackBerry Canada) now seeing this, i figured i would make my own. i have access to the same material this is made from, so why not!? i made my own template and cut out the pattern using a specific machine. coolest part about it, is that i have it fitting perfectly! all around the logo on the back the way it should be, unlike the bodyguardz' cutout. i also made it out of material that looks like a wooden ebony vaneer, with pores and grain. i also have other styles of wood as well as the same carbon fiber stuff i saw on shopcrackberry. stuff goes on nicely with no air bubbles and can peel off without harming. check it out!
edit: due to the apparent interest in the skin, ill start mailing them out for $20! if you would like one, hit me up on paypal with your address included. badrat*at*me.com. thanks :)

guys obviously this isn't just a hobby, this is a person who is a merchant and is sorta pretending to be a random guy that made his own skin by cutting out a vinyl sticker...so I don't think you"ll be seeing any youtube vids anytime soon LOL obviously this is just a ruse to make some money...not that I'm saying there is anything wrong with that...just that it would be better if your more straight forward with your intentions?
