This was a project that I had though about for a while. Its a book used to keep track of domino games played between my friends and I. We normally play when were are drinking a few beers , or before a game or something like that. Often times one person brags about how much they beat the other person, or how many wins in a row….etc. Normally we take score on a loose sheet of paper and all bragging rights are conviently misplaced.

So this is the remedy. It has 90 pages of card stock, which can hold about 16 games played on each (1440 in total) It should last a few years providing that it stays in tact.

It is made with some pine i think that is help together by some leather string. I wanted to give it a rustic look, without using any metal. Ill have to find a way to latch the two small boards together and maybe something to prevent the pages from sliding from the ends. However, it was made with the purpose of flexability. When playing dominoes, space it at a premium, so the top had to fold under the back and lay flat. Anything attached to the sides would have to not interfere with the hands of the scorekeeper.

A simple two day/i need a project to do task, should last and settle a few arguments before they get out of hand

You must certainly take dominos seriously to warrant such a book! I can see your artistic inclination here – that is a great trait to carry over to woodworking.

Nice job. For those of us that don’t play dominos it could easily be transferred to other types of books.
