I stained about 18 or so books with 3 different stain colors
safety first! I wear a respirator doing a lot of my work - staining and sanding wood can be pretty harsh on the lungs. The lines this lovely couture mask leaves are sexy.. lemme tell you.
Book almost done - I like this size of this one, it's a typical large sketch book style.
finished book - size is slightly smaller than your typical CD case. These are some of the few natural wood books without stain. I like these books in the sense that stains appear on the wood and give it a worn out look naturally.
sleepy time desk.. desk cleaned up and at dusk.
I still have to start sanding about 20 more books and get the hinges on and ready to go. Not bad though for a weekends work.
