Re: Metal/Plexiglas, etc. Boards

How about drilling holes in the plexi which would approximate the tie-downs
and having the bead rest on the plexi itself. That should work for all but
the braided leather ones. The only messy part I can think of, assuming you
drilled the holes nice and neat is the threads on the back side... The
other thing to consider is that the book is a small elegant format so you
won't want your boards to be too thick.
