* pieces you will need

  • base x 2
  • top(bottom) wall x 2
  • spine wall x 1

 

* measurements

  • width of base = book width + 1 x board thickness
  • length of base = book height + 2 x board thickness + 1 mm
  • width of top(bottom) wall = book thickness + 1 mm
  • length of top(bottom) wall = book width
  • width of spine wall = book thickness + 1 mm
  • length of spine wall = book height + 1 mm

 

  1. Prepare pieces.
  2. Glue pieces together.
  3. Line outside of the case with paper (over 120gsm) to protect joints and to smoothen planes. Do not wrap paper around. Do one plane at a time.
  4. Tailor covering material as shown on the picture.
