I had a dream, and I realized it.
I built a book entirely of wood. This book should see a realistic book confusingly similar.
The cover of the book has a hole as marquetry. You can read the text on the first page.
The book has a secret compartment.
I can show more pictures and answer questions.
From the construction of the book there is a video series on YouTube.
Greetings Uwe

The presentation of the book you see here.

What I have to say is often overused however in this case – truly awesome.

Oh, danke Schwieb und in deutschen Worten. Ich muss nicht den Übersetzer bemühen. Der Text in der Signatur gefällt mir sehr gut. Durch harte Arbeit werden Träume wahr ist mein Motto.
