Hello everyone.
I love to read. I usually buy used books, in lots. But I already have several that would not return to read and I want others to have the ability to access a book like me.
Here I never saw the option to “free exchange of books,” so I took the idea of the work of LJ, and more information about the web.
Use Kiri wood, which is very lightweight and weather resistant. I had to join tables, use also cuts to the back. And despite having all the details, I am satisfied with the work.
All joints with glue and screws. The termination is water-based varnish.
I loved the system to hang, and it’s the first time I’ll use this.
A friend placed in front of his business, in a crowded place, and I hope to achieve some result.
In one of the photos you can see my new toy … a screwdriver B & D. Long wanted, and I could finally indulge myself.
A big hug to everyone.

Nice project and a great idea! I hope it works out, that would be a great way to get introduced to new books you wouldn’t normally pick up if you had to pay for them.

My Argentinian wife would approve! She also loves to read too! When I married her, I didn’t realize I was marrying her library too! jajaja

Buena idea Gerardo, se la voy a proponer a unos conocidos que tienen una biblioteca popular (por supuesto que la propuesta va con la repisa…). Gracias por la idea, quedó muy lindo el trabajo y la acción. Felicitaciones por la atornilladora. Saludos.

Beautiful work, Gerardo. We have many “Little Free Librarys” in the US, including many in my neighborhood in Minnesota. I made a fun one for my church.
