Book Binding; some books I made a while back

A recent design for a DaySpring journal. You might see it in Barnes and Noble.
Book cover made from an old Eddie Bauer Bag

A binding I dreamed up one day. It took some tricky sewing to keep the thread from putting too much stress on the paper.

My very first hard cover handsewn book. And by now its completely full of journal entries, sketches, and memories.

Etched Glass Coffee Table

I have a glass top coffee table that constantly looked dirty because of fingerprints. I wanted to etch the glass to get around that problem, but didn't just want it solid. I found a pattern I liked for the middle, then wrapped the 23rd Psalm around the edge. I ordered the design cut in vinyl from and etched the glass with acid. This is how it turned out.
