I made three of these for Christmas gifts for this year. It is a cook book holder (or as you can see in the first picture a Lumberjocks cook book holder). I fashioned it from one that we have. It is constructed of cherry that I got from a from a cabinet shops throw away bin. As you can see it is mitered with splines for the corner construction. The piece holding the Plexiglas, which sits in a 1/8” dado and is held in place with two #4 1/2” screws, is hinged to the base frame using 1/2” brass hinges. The Plexiglas helps keep the book open as well as preventing splashes of food getting on the pages of the book. The inner book support sits in a 1/2” x 1/2” rabbit and is hinged with brass rod. The black piece you can see in the last picture between the inner and outer frame is a O ring to hold pressure between the two pieces so they don’t flop around. The hole where the brass rod goes you can see has been plugged with a 1/4” dowel. The holder sits on 4 clear rubber feet to stop it from sliding.
These were a fun project to make, which were being constructed at the same time the last frame project I posted was being made. I worked on these while waiting for glue to dry on the frame.
