had one extra text block laying around so I decided to make a book with the logo of this website and learn a couple new things on the process.
First, I wanted to the cover to look like actual wood so I got some very thin plywood for that. The back was going to be covered with leather so I just used ugly MDF.
Pro tip! cut your covers together. That way they are always exactly the same shape and you only cut once.
Here I joined the plywood and MDF with a couple c-clamps before cutting.
Done! covers ready witn one cut! Yes… in retrospect it´s quite obvious to cut several things together but im just starting my battle against my massive ignorance…
Next come glue…
Last week I saw a great tip on Tested.com where they spread glue using the side of a screw so I found this piece of cardboard wich allready had a perfect zig-zag on the edge for spreading glue.
Covers done! and ready for part 2, covering with leather.
