Love the hinges too. I’m gonna try that some day.

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.
