made the Leigh woodworking site


Recommended Posts

thanks everyone and Shane i'm about 25 years away from a cover of FWW. those bibles are impressive works of art, each one takes monks (in Michigan i think) about 6 months to complete just one, all done by hand, leather bound and illustrated in gold leaf by hand. each set has 7 volumes and there are only 100 sets being produced.

Great work, Dave. Very deserving of the highlight, and just as nice if not nicer than anything on that page!

The crosses on the drawers are a great touch for the piece and done super well !

Yeah, speaking of the crosses- did you journal that piece, or can you share how you did the crosses?
