The title says most of what could be said about this project.
The front and back covers are laminated alder with black walnut accents. They are 1/4” thick with the edges pillowed over with a block plane and sandpaper. It’s sanded to 320 grit and finished with a satin, something or other, finish from a spray can. There are two light coats applied to both the inside and the outsides of the covers.
There are pieces of paper sandwiched in between the front and the back with aluminum biding posts found at the local hardware store. I polished the slotted heads with a buffing wheel and polishing compound on a bench top grinder. The paper was purchased from a local craft store.
The hinge was made by cutting some slots in the edges with a hand saw and gluing in a piece of a web strap. I used CA glue to secure the webbing into the slots.
Thanks for Looking!
