I have have a few requests for more process oriented blog entrees with photos and I am happy to oblige. I have a workshop for the "Into the Crypt" tunnel book coming up in Grand Rapids soon. My husband, Bob, has been more than willing to help me with the construction of the wooden fronts and backs for these books. Here he is cutting out the 8" X 8" plywood pages.
The 3 holes needed for binding the books are done in a drill press so that they are nice and even. These wooden book covers will be included in a kit that will be provided for everyone attending the workshop. Also, all the imagery to complete 16 plus pages (front and back), along with other materials will be included.
The front page of the book has a cut out that is done on a small old Dremel jig saw that I have had for years. It's one of my favorite tools. This, a palm sander and an electric drill are the only power tools I feel comfortable using. Bob does the rest for me. Besides, he won't let me use his tools. We have "his" and "hers" tools.
