hi gavin,

this is really fantastic to watch how this project is coming together. i like that you use binder's board for the spines. that is how i learned, and while i see how wood can be a nice alternative, i agree with your reasons for sticking to board.

thanks, by the way, for a comment you left on my blog about a month ago. sorry for the delayed response. i've been spending more time gardening than binding this summer, but i plan to get back to it in full force this fall and to post more on books than on tomatoes and squash!

i'm curious where you learned bookbinding?
