This week at The Book Hut

This week has been a hive of activity and productivity at the book hut, with lots of new projects coming in and a substantial amount of tools and other treats completed and ready for the Etsy store.

The projects coming in have been a selection of spine removals, tape removal, rehousing, rebacking and a full fine binding for an author based locally, which is going to be a great project get going on – so good stuff all around!

These lifting tools have been made from old hacksaw blades and are extremely useful for getting under spine pieces, end papers and for tape removal. At the moment, I am investigating the limitations of listing knives (or prison shanks, as one of the other hutters renamed them…) on Etsy, as I suspect there are numerous restrictions on selling weapons online! If you would like one before I have sorted this out, please email me – they are £15.00 each, plus P&P.

Also on the agenda were tin can organisers made from coca cola cans and the like – If you haven’t seen them before, they are the same size as mini Filofaxes and can be refilled. All available on Etsy!

I also finally managed to get my little pamphlet bindings folded and in the press, they’ll be ready for trimming and sewing next week – watch this space for completed ones!

Phew! Busy week – don’t mention the map, it’s my nemesis.
