I am hoping you all can help me out with a design issue…
I have been in the Navy for some time now, and I have a few hobbies besides woodworking that keep me fairly occupied. One of those is card collecting.
I recently purchased a set of cards (20 in total) showing Navy ships from history.
I would like to have a display for these that I can show them all off in the same setup. My idea as of now is a book with 5 pages, made of wood, to display the cards. I am curious if anyone here has ever made a wooden book before, and if so, what are some of the things I should look out for, and how do you recommend I do the binding of the book.
My idea so far is to have a cutout for 4 cards per page and something clear to prevent them from getting dusty or falling out. I only intend to have barely enough thickness to surround the cards, so maybe each page will be just under 1/8” thick.
Ok, thanks in advance for the tips and advice.
