That is sharp. I was thinking anbout using 3M's DI-NOC carbon fiber film. A 12 x 12 sheet is $15 from here http://www.carbonfiberfilm.com/. I did my netbook in this. Very easy to work with and great results.

Are either of these real woven carbon fiber or just a carbon fiber look? Is it laminated? Removable?

Looked at the web site in the first post. It looks to be some kind of decal and not made from actual Carbon Fiber - but I could be wrong. ;)

Not actually carbon fiber, but looks like it. And also has the texture of the real thing which makes gripping your Nookie a little more secure. I have one of the custom back cf panels like this on my G tablet and love it.

And just ordered this one for the Nook!

not laminated, not real CF either but its very textured, like any good skin it'll come off the device without leaving any marks or stickyness.

the texture is unbeatable when it comes to skins though

i just recently got this same skin myself and everything said positively about this is dead on.

Great feel, easy application, fantastic screen protector, my 100% fingerprinted covered screen is now about 2% - 5% if that, and gives a better tactile feel to the screen
