These were Christmas presents last year for all of my family. I made about 20 of them. They were mostly all different veneers on the plywood. The spline is Maple with tiger maple veneer and solid tiger maple on the side of the spline. It was glued with epoxy on top of the piano hinges. The sides were 1/4” plywood with veneer on both sides – all 4 sides were the same veneer and were bookmatched. Some had 1 sheet on each side and others were had multiple sheets bookmatched on each surface.
The plans for these binders were from Wood magazine called WoodExtra in a failed attempt at an electronic magazine. I signed up for 1 year (6 issues) and maybe got 3 before the project was canceled.
This plan might also be included in a Wood magazine book of Projects. I bought the book but can’t put my hands on it now. I bought the three ring metal parts from a company in Chicago, Ill. They weren’t too expensive.
I’ve still got about 20 metal parts so I need to make a bunch for myself to get the filing under control.
