This project was inspired by JohnAjluni , you can see his project here.

This is VERY simple to use and make. The jig itself took me about 10-15 minutes to build.

The making of the booklet was easier than I thought it would be. One thing you have to make sure of is that your fence is 90 degrees otherwise the stack of paper won’t sit in it nice and flush. You also want to take your time while folding your paper in half to make sure they are perfect folds, so everything will line up. You don’t want a ton of epoxy on the paper otherwise it’ll bleed through and you’ll see it on the pages/covers.

Here is a great video on Youtube showing you step-by-step how to use the jig and how to make the booklet! Enjoy!

Thanks JohnAjluni for the great idea! I will be using this to make note-sets for school. Will come in handy.

Very nice.

As I’m watching this I’m thinking “Why would I ever make a book?”

Well then it hit me. I bought my planer and drill press from craigslist. The sellers didn’t have the manuals so I found them online and printed them out.

Well that would be the perfect thing to make a book out of.

definitely would!! haha. having a book around nice and labeled is a lot better than having a bunch of papers stapled together (probably to get thrown out, or lost)
