This is a set of wooden carved books using odds and ends from the shop and found wood. I don’t know how many I will end up with. They are not connected into one piece; I just like the stack – similar to the actual piles around the house from my night time reading.

Very cool. Are they also boxes? It wouldn’t be too difficult to add some hinges to the next set, right?
Thanks for sharing this clever idea. I like them…......

Those are cool, can they be a “slide out the pages” type box, wouldn’t want to ruin it with hinges?! You could have secret compartments to hide stuff:) lol
