An Artist's Day to Day Musings

Life of a Book Worm


This little beauty is a small book press made with a counter top cut to size with a plain old plywood clamped on top. Both pieces are held together with long screw bits, and can be tightened with two wing nuts.

No I did not make it unfortunately but I may be able to recreate another later on. I am no carpenter so the names for the parts I may not have right on the money so for all you wood workers out there forgive me!

The plan is to restore some antique books in my family library so the process and end results should be interesting.
