Not strictly woodworking, but I used all my woodworking tools to make and shape it.
After almost 30 ounces of epoxy I was getting close to exhausting my supply!
Even with all these clamps there was still a slight wave to the pages
I really wanted to get down to the words. Now this is heavy reading! The resin added quite a bit of weight to the book!
I put on a brand new belt for my sander and it was totally gummed up by the end. And you should have seen the dust cloud! Even with my air filter it took an hour to clear…
Cutting the groove was a simple matter of setting the blade to 20* and making a series of passes.
Add a little enamel for protection and you’re done!
Those 400 pages hold but a single story, and now they can upright a device capable of holding thousands of stories.
