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.
