I have a bunch of old computer manuals where some are almost 1000 pages and hate to just dump them. I guess in a TEOTWAWKI (The End Of The World As We Know It) scenario I got plenty of TP, or fire material, but I would love to make something more useful.
I've thought about doing a table top in the vein of the end cut cutting board or table top.
Ideally I would get cut the books into 1/3's or in 1/2, get the top edges all flush, bolt or glue them together, then build a frame around them and cut the bottom edge even. After assembly I'd like to put some sort of clear finish on it to show it off.
The big question that I have is do I try to glue the pages together? Wet glue and expanding pages would pose a problem.
Guess I have a project for the week, or maybe should finish the other table….
