I’ve been trying to gather the materials for the Zoom H2 digital recorder that I have. I found this video that gives great instructions but it’s been a challenge to find the right fabric. My helpful mother-in-law found something that she thought might work and wrapped it up for me for Christmas. I also found some high density foam at the local craft store. So the time has come. The video referenced above gives instructions for a more durable version than what I’m going for here. I have a surplus of materials so may try that at some point in the future.
First step is to cut out a reasonable chunk of foam.
Next I joined the seam with hot glue to make the foam into a tube.
I sealed one opening and rounded the corners.
I bought a rotary cutter for cutting fiberglass, it worked pretty well for this, much better than scissors.
Finally I wrapped the fabric around the foam, securing it with hot glue as I went. Here’s the recorder nestled in the finished screen.
And here’s the finished product in all it’s glory.
I’ll work on recording some tests once the temperature outside becomes more habitable.
