This is a nice guide, The trimming step is especially helpful, I usually just dont bother trimming my books because it is such a pain, but maybe I will now. I have only made books with a hard spine or long stitch books before, but I will have to try this method. Also if you haven't, you should try making your signatures with cloth tapes, it goes a lot faster than chain stitching.Also my mom makes marbled paper for bookbinding (or any other paper craft) which is how I got interested in bookbinding. Anyone interested in making books with traditionally marbled paper should check her stuff out! https://www.etsy.com/shop/misshelleboreSorry for the plug and thanks for the guide!
Im curious how long it last before it gets stress fractures? 6061 aluminum (which most bicycle wheel are made of) does not like bending. You aren't going past its plasticity point so I imagine you can get a decent amount of shots but it wont last forever.
Yeah these are great tips and I could think of tons more too, I wanted to keep this instructable as basic as possible, but I have already started to work on a sort of advanced version of this instructable, going more into the specifics of expansion rates and how to deal with or allow for wood movement, it is a pretty dense topic though, hard to make understandable.

Also just out of curiosity what led you to this instructable, I only ask cause I had a huge spike in views today even though its been up for a while, just wondering how people heard about this?
This is really great!
Okay, this whole conversation has gotten away from my original question which is "Why did it change from the old system to the new system." That is really all I wanted to know and the only people who can answer that are community managers who have been around long enough to have been a part of both systems.
actually the official rules say that the criteria are equally weighted
hrm, now I am going to have to re read the rules I'm pretty sure it says somewhere that they are equally weighted.
Then users due the final judging based on the same criteria, and if it says they are equally weighted in that step it follows that they should be equally weighted in all steps.
well if it comes down to simply giving a high score to the ones you like then the official rules of the contests should not even bother listing criteria. And I could certainly point out some instructables that won contests that should n have. I won't post them publicly but if you care I could private message you some links.
Thanks! I had some ideas that might be cool, like making the drawer face a different species like cherry or walnut, or not putting a face on at all so you can see the plywood edge and rails. whatever you do post a picture if you end up adding a drawer, I would like to see how it turns out.
Thanks, There is still lots more that can be learned from the book but I think I got the most important stuff as far as buying lumber is concerned.
Thanks, I edited it. I hesitated at first to ask people to vote in the instructable itself, I wasnt sure if people would think it was tacky.
Please note, you have to click on the individual pictures to see all the notations! Also if you like this please vote in the furniture hacking, plywood, and before and after contests!

Thinking about how the lumber is cut from the tree has really transformed how I work with wood, I wanted to share that, glad you liked it.
My pleasure, glad you liked it.
Thanks! Never stop learning!
Yeah, that is definitely true for woods used in construction like spruce and Doug fur. Although I recently discovered that in the US each state's DNR keeps a list of all the sawmills in that state and you can buy directly from most of the smaller ones. You are then limited to the species that grow in your state but from my limited experience the quality has been great and the prices have been super reasonable.

No problem, it's pretty dense but really interesting!
Thanks, glad you found it helpful!
