I’ve been building a few of these recipe stands to take to our Sunday market. The think I like about them is that they pretty much have to be done with hand tools (the chiseling anyway). They are each made from one piece of wood, and hinge flat for hanging on the wall. The hinge requires a sharp chisel, and a bit of patience. Re-sawing down the centre of them was done with my new frame saw, and to separate the last few fibers of holding together the hinges, I use a knife I made from a metal ruler, which gives it a nice thin blade for getting in there. The wood is pink birch (again), finished with linseed oil (which leaves it very dark).
