Took about all the pine scraps in the shop to build. The black foam pad idea didn’t work, wasn’t enough clearence. Lots of ways to make bit holders…I think I tried most of them. Outside pieces to form each page were finger jointed, then nailed and glued in place.

Brass hook & eyes to make the latches. Modified to fit. may tried to make a “table of Contents/Index and add that to the inside of the front cover. Brass plated hinges…a LOT of them….were used around in back.

Witch’s Brew for the finish, top coated with a BLO/ Varnish mix. Will have to do a headcount on the number and sizes of the bits. They run from the #4 up to the #20.

There is a build blog around, somewhere. May need to make a bookshelf to hold this book. Thanks for looking in.

Looking good Bandit. Glad you found something for the latches, looks like it worked out well.

Looks good. You made excellent use out of pieces that I probably would have used in a campfire.
