Many thanks to Jeffro for posting his Wood Portfolio. I wish I had his woodworking skills.

I hurried to get this finished for a Craft Fair yesterday. I made this to show examples of my work at Craft Fairs, etc. It worked great for that purpose. The book itself generated a lot of interest. I ended up selling it (in lieu of making another one for a client). So, now I get to make version 2.0 for myself.

(Note to self: see previous Lesson Learned…never make just one.)

All wood construction (Padauk, Purpleheart, Cedar, Wenge, & Bird’s Eye Maple). These are my first wooden hinges.

I hated to sell it, but I know v2.0 will be even better. And, I’ll make a couple of extras to have available to sell.

Interesting. I would certainly look twice if I saw it lying around.

Well done

I got this Padauk from Cropp Timber on my last wood buying trip and yes the book is as heavy as it looks.

That is very nice. I’m especially taken with the purple heart hinges. What a great idea.

That is simply genius. I’m not surprised somebody bought it.. I would have too. So yeah, I guess you’ll have to make more next time around, both for sales and as gifts. I can’t see why anybody wouldn’t want one. Lovely wood too. Thanks for sharing! :)
