This was a fun little project I did as a mother’s day present for my wife. She’s a real bibliophile, so it seemed appropriate. The “book” is made from walnut I resawed on my band saw and some white cedar I had left over from another project. The “cover” is held in place with a small stop on the underside of the lid. Pretty simple.
I hand planed everything flush after glue up so it is difficult to tell there is a seem. I’m pretty happy with that.
The finish is just a rubbed on wax – I needed something fast and easy and wax seemed appropriate to the task.
This was the first time I did really tried resawing… it didn’t go so well… I need to spend some time to invest in a fence for the band saw.
-- I do this for fun.
