When my husband and I were in Springfield for the Scrollsaw contest, a couple of the magazine reps were there promoting their books, mags. etc. Well this sample of the log book was there that the original artist made along with the magazine that the pattern it came out in. I was very intriged by this and got one of the magazines, although the magazine was Woodcarving Illustrated. I adapted the pattern so that I could scrollsaw it instead. I did do some carving, but not something I have ever done before, so not too much carving.
When I was taking pictures of this to share with you I got a piece of black matt board so you could see the pages easily. This was just so exciting to make. On the last picture you can see there is a piece of leather that is used as the binding of the book. The log is Hackberry 5” round by 5” long. Cut both front and back of book off and the block you are left with is the pages.
The pattern is originally made by Roy Ellery. I was hoping that his e-mail was in the article would have liked to talk to him. Loved making this.
Hope you enjoy looking.
