Project Information

Many thanks to Jeffro for posting his Wood Portfolio. I wish I had his woodworking skills.

I hurried to get this finished for a Craft Fair yesterday. I made this to show examples of my work at Craft Fairs, etc. It worked great for that purpose. The book itself generated a lot of interest. I ended up selling it (in lieu of making another one for a client). So, now I get to make version 2.0 for myself.

(Note to self: see previous Lesson Learned…never make just one.)

All wood construction (Padauk, Purpleheart, Cedar, Wenge, & Bird's Eye Maple). These are my first wooden hinges.

I hated to sell it, but I know v2.0 will be even better. And, I'll make a couple of extras to have available to sell.

Great work. The ones I made for myself also sold. Real eye catchers.

Interesting. I would certainly look twice if I saw it lying around.

Well done

That is simply genius. I'm not surprised somebody bought it.. I would have too. So yeah, I guess you'll have to make more next time around, both for sales and as gifts. I can't see why anybody wouldn't want one. Lovely wood too. Thanks for sharing! :)

I can see some ways I'd want to improve on the design as something to make for my wife but I really like it and it is a nice inspiration piece.
