Wednesday Woodworking – little libraries and little books

Well, I got sucked into the little library vortex.  Here’s a picture of the prototype:

A little library box. Needs more work but this is a start.

Then my brain went a little sideways and I thought, “If we have little wooden libraries, we should have little wooden books.”

Okay, here you are little wooden books for the little wooden library:

These at 3.5 inches wide by 5 inches long. Heather painted the one on the right and gave it a title.

These are being made as part of the publicity campaign.  They’ve asked for 200.

So that means: I’ll be in the shop – a lot.

    • It is, but they tell me I’ve got that many people to keep busy making them for a couple of hours. Just hope the neighbors don’t mind me running the table saw for three hours this Sunday afternoon.

    Brilliant idea all round. Hopefully no woodworm but bookworms are essential.
