Wonderful design and use of barn board. Looks like something from Harry Potter.

Great looking book, love the wood used… Was the carving already there or is that yours, I am unable to make out the inscription but am curious what it says… Thanks for sharing…

Hard to read inscription but I think it says “I love Kimberly 10 Aug from Everette” Guessing he put the inscription in :)

Love the hinges!

Inscription says, “I love you Kimberly Young. From Everette” :) It was my birthday gift this year… and I absolutely love it.
