Time for a fun one! Books were $1.50 each at thrift store. Somewhere a librarian is screaming!

Cool idea. Did you cut the books on a table saw?

Yes I did use the table saw, cut them against the fence for uniform size. Cutting felt really weird unlike lumber. I dumped the pages in the recycle bin. I did keep the hardboard hardback covers might be a future project in there!

Good Idea for the yard sale romance novels from 20 years ago. Let me rephrase that. Any romance novels.

Here is where I found this:

I’m going to see if I can find the books for, let’s say $1.00 for all next time. That and scrap wood would make this almost a free one.

Cool would be to find a law office throwing out the law library.
