I guess it’s called a book box, but that sounds like a box for storing books.

More on this project and plans available here.

Nice one, Steve. I thought about making one of these myself, but I always end up hollowing out old, unwanted books instead. :-)

Hi, Steve! What a nice project! Every time I see you make something I learn something new. What a great way to make hinges. The book itself looks awesome and is a wonderful project. Thanks as always for such cool how to videos. You make it look so easy!

Always a nice project coming from you Steve. I notice at the end you cut your finger. That always makes the best red wood stain for a project. Thank you for all the work you put into these. They are great. :)

Nice video tutorial, Stevin, and as always, with your sense of humor. The book box would be a nice project for anyone to do.
