I was to make a box to hold the books, but it took me a lot of time to figure out what I wanted to do with it. In the end, Imade a 'plateau' of sorts to put the books in: I didn't want to hide the books inside a box! Yesterday we gave them back, and my dad was mighty pleased with the results!

(And if you have a pocket book that you want to have restored, you know who to call!)
