Yapp, just finished the binding of a new set of book-blocks ;)

Found a paper, which matches better according to the info. of Adam Savage about the original books.
New pics as soon as a I trimmed the books.

cool, love this build. cant wait to see some new pics of your work.
just a suggestion but would you add the Sammael pages to one of the books, as having this open when you display it would really add to the depth and detail of the piece.

keep up the work on this its one of my fav projects on the forum.

As Adam has public ally posted the books pics I feel it would be OK to post the pics I have. I hope this is alright with you Adam.
I had the newer books made for Adam by the original book maker as I worked at the Modelmakers that made Brooms box.

Hello everyone. I know this is an older post but... I finally have the time to take a stab at this. I have read through the whole of the thread; collected, linked all of your great builds and reference. All I noticed that is missing from the thread is that Mr. Savage's large notes about the sizes for all the cubies have gone dead due to icloud changing how it works. If anyone has those images that would be great. Any help is greatly appreciated.

The jars kind of resemble antique telegraph insulators the kind made of crematics.

Hey there, another new poster to this old thread... but i have a few questions if anyones still out there haha. Do you have any reference for / the place you got the hardware you used, i.e., the hinges, chain, and nobs? what is the length/width/height spacing of the boxjoints? And finally what are the measurements of the front face of the box, such as the section below the face door, the face door itself, and the lip that seats into the notch on/in the panels? Oh, and whats the length/width of the leather strap? Most of these details seem to be absent in Adams brilliant sketches, which are an epic reference, as is everyones builds, truely inspiring.
