I seemed to have lost Tuesday…

Filed under: Morning Musings, Review — jackie @ 9:20 am

Good morning readers.

Yesterday was a crazy day. It was one of those days that got away from me and I never seemed to be able to catch up with it.

Recently on one of my Amazon shopping sprees I bought a DVD titled Bookbinding: A Traditional Technique. It is an excellent DVD for someone just starting out in binding as it covers the basics very thoroughly. The DVD is 63 minutes long and teaches you how to make a simple hardcover book from start to finish. You’ll learn about basic tools and paper grain as well as how to build your own simple press and sewing frame. The DVD also includes PDF files detailing the construction of the press and sewing frame and a supply list. Normally, I wouldn’t have gotten such a basic video for myself but for the price of only $14.99 I wanted to see if it would be useful for some of you readers who are just starting to learn how to bind a book.

For being a worthwhile beginner DVD I give this tutorial aThumbs upThumbs up.

Now…I’m thinking on perhaps having a little contest with this DVD as the prize. I’ll get back to you all shortly on that. :)

If you haven’t been to the forum recently be sure to surf on over and check out Janette Heffernen’s post about Peter Goodwins leather paring knives.

I hope everyone has a great day.
