Xylotheque #5

Its time to make this a little more functional. Up until now the covers parts have only been connected to the spine through friction. So now I’m going to secure the cords with glue and cover them:

A quick marking out helps me to create some infill pieces from corrugated card:

The cords are then trimmed and glued down, compressing them as flat as possible using a bonefolder. (I first made sure that they were the right length!)

And then covered with another layer of card to neatly hide the cords. The spine section will also be covered, but not in the same way… Now they must dry.
