These ESSENTIAL corner cutters are for trimming book cloth and paper on board corners. They will help you to trim the board covers PRECISELY to make a neat and accurate turn in. See the video to see them in action.
They are made from oak and brass, and fit a perfect 90 degree angle within the wood. The brass is 3mm thick and van be used as follows:
- to cut the board cover 3mm away from the corner of your board.
- to cut precisely 45 degrees from the corner of your board
- perfect for a 2.50 – 3.00mm thick board.
- to give you a neat and accurate corner to turn in.
- to speed up your work.
They are incredibly useful, and make quick work of your corners, accurately and beautifully.
Although I have made these, I cannot take credit for their design. Shown to me by another bookbinder, I believe they originate from Japan. However I have never been able to find them myself – hence making them by hand.
