My wife is a Library Director, an avid reader and a true romantic. I was thumbing through some old woodworking magazines this weekend and came across these plans for the wooden books. She’s seen these before and always said how cool it would be to have….and for once in my life I came up with an original romantic idea!
I flew into my workshop and made some quick glue ups of different sizes and ran out to the shed and planned down 3 books at random thicknesses. The books are really easy to make…..it takes a little time to create the pages look on the table saw but other than that it’s simple.
Now for the romantic part; I wrote her a note saying that the 3 books represented our past, present and future. That no one else could ever know what lies in the pages locked away from everyone else but us. That when she looked at the books and day dreamed of their contents to envision the last book being the greateast story she would ever read!
Hey….it’s all I got and better than spending $50 on roses….right?
