Hi, guys!
Here another project from SSW&C (thanks to Kim Braa).
Bloodwood, walnut, sapele, oak for box and lot of scraps for decorative fronts.
Teak oil and wax outside and flocking inside.
I do not know what was more enjoyable – to work on this project or to hear “Wow!” from my wife …

Great job on the stack of books. I saw that pattern and really liked it. Flocking is a cool detail that really brings the project to life.

I understand completely – I enjoy creating my projects but when someone likes them also – that is the icing on the cake.

Great job on this. Coincidentally my Saturday morning newspaper had a DIY craft project to create a book box out of hardback books from Goodwill and craft supplies from the dollar store. I like your version MUCH better.

Thanks for sharing,

I love it, This is really unique. I’ve been asked to build a cigar humidor for a friends birthday and this has definitely tweaked my interest. Thanks for a great idea and very nice work.

Thank you very much all for such rave feedbacks!
About pages… the sides was sliced with scroll saw, each “page” was sanded and all glued back.
I hope my explanation is clear enough.
