It has been a very long time since I wrote my last instructable. I had a lot to do with family affairs.
But now a new project is ready to be presented here. It is called the
This funny looking story teller is very easy and quickly to do.
This very old book was printed in 1901 and laid in a wastepaper container of a paper mill. I took this book and within a second the idea to create a steampunk-styled ancient story teller was born. I thought it should look like a book from the secret-library of captain Nemo at his famous submarine Nautilus.
The title of the book says that its content is about elementary aspects of mechanics and this fits perfectlyl into the world of neo victorian steampunk inventers.
So if you like, follow me through this instructable and have fun with it.

Step 1: Prepare the book
To prepare the book you have to cut out parts of the pages. First start with cutting a frame made of plywood. Open the book and fix this frame with two srewclamps. Then you can cut out the pages carefully with a very sharp knife. (Take care of your fingers while working with shrap instruments.) Cut out only some pages in one step, take them out and cut the next pages again. When this work is finished, you have to glue the inner parts of the page-frame left with wood glue. Take a small paint brush for this work and take care that the glue is all over the inner frame so it can hold all pages together. When the glue is hard cured you can take away the clamps and the plywood frame. Now the book is ready for the next step.
To keep the book at the end of this project closed I took four brass made screws M4 and drilled four 4mm holes through. The cap nuts at the front page protect the new push buttons if you lay down the talking book at this side.
