HHH! That ought to work.  I wonder if the acrylic sheet will hold up to the pressure? I'm thinking you're going to need some stainless plates, eventually.

You'll also need to change the kitchen decor to 'Steam Punk' to go along with the design.  (I love Steam Punk.)

Why e-ink?  FWIW, I have the 10" HD Fire tablet used mostly as a control panel for the smarthome stuff. Works fine. If you plan to mostly read, it has the Kindle app.  There are APKs which allow Fires to access the Playstore for non-Amz android apps.

I particularly like the easel-style charging dock. Very convenient.  Whole rig is relatively inexpensive.

>WWII airplane

When I was 13, there was an abandoned B52 fuselage on a vacant lot just outside our small base.  I had a great time in that thing.

I can't tell you which way it's forming, but a new world order does seem to be in play.  UK & US trending down.
