I wish to deliver your consideration to this wonderful list of books compiled by Charles Hugh Smith, who additionally writes OfTwoMinds and Survival+ (see this post). Many of those books additionally kind the muse of my very own enthusiastic about the longer term [and the past and the present].
It additionally contains the ERE guide as proven right here within the “ERE library” which is modeled on the Jefferson library. Sure, he had guide instances very similar to this—I constructed it utilizing [most of] the instructions from Roy Underhill.
Really I simply wished to indicate off the guide case I simply completed making. It’s my first foray into dovetails and this case took about 8 hours to make all mixed together with squaring off the boards with a block airplane and chiseling out the pins and dovetails.
Complete price of supplies for the case: $5 or so. And it’ll final for many years not like disposable nail and pressed board furnishings. Whether or not it deserves to dwell that lengthy is one other matter.
PS: It’s truly meant as a CD case which is why the pins are on the fallacious boards for a guide case. The plan was to miter the corners just like the originals, however I had a tough time with the 3D pondering because it was. Subsequent iteration will embody mitered corners [and hopefully tighter dovetails].
