Feb. 19th, 2012 @ 09:16 am Magic wallet
Current Mood: accomplishedaccomplished
Last Tuesday was the first lesson of the advanced bookbinding course. There's only four of us, but that means plenty of coaching from the teacher, and the mood is great. The first project is a so-called 'magic wallet', and of course we lacked the time to finish it completely during the lesson -- so I got some homework. I just finished it, and I took a little video to show you my handiwork.

I didn't have to watch the video, I immediately knew what it was.
My late grandmother once made one for me and as a kid, I was fascinated by it. I spend so much time carefully opening and closing the thing, that I still know exactly how it works.

Ha! I can totally picture younger-you getting into this thing until you understood it.

Maybe a good future gift for your nephew?

Good one -- though I don't think he is as analytical as you are/were.

Doesn't matter, you can still be the cool uncle who knows magic!

Good point! But maybe I'll learn something even cooler during the course, so I'm holding off making something for now. ;)

Wat super zeg, mooi gedaan. Een goede manier om het geld in je portemonnee te houden. Goed om te horen dat je weer gestart bent met de boekbindcursus, ik kijk uit naar je vorderingen.
