« Part 29: Music Book Part 30 of what i've been doing series Part 31: Winter is coming so I desided to install a stove. Now I cant wait for the cold! »

I had enough of the birds-eye maple to make a second book. I wanted to make one a bit smaller. The spines of the books are tiger maple and I wanted a contrasting wood for the pages, Granadillo was handy and I think a fine contrast. I worked on the smaller book first to get the bugs and design changes out of the way before finishing the larger book. I am thinking on poping the grain with some gel stain and then a good rub down with BLO and a french polish finish. I might try an airbrush technique that I have used before on smaller items.

very nice Dave. I like the card tool. I always use my diamond stone, but I might have to try your method.

Great video Dave – amazing shavings from that Granadillo! As Roger said, why such a small plane! Very cool, lucky wife!

Thanks Jeff. I think it will look neat with 2 books and one will have a bit of a surprise.
