Rosewood (bone) folder for book binding, box making or paper arts.

 

 

 

Folder Dimensions: L: 5.75″ x 1″

Box Dimensions: L: 7.75″ x W: 3.5″ x H: 2.5″

 

 

I rarely use power tools, instead I shape wood with handtools such as planes, chisels and saws. The folder is shaped by hand. The Walnut box is hand dovetailed. The folder itself rests inside the box on a pedestal lined with leather.

 

 

 

 

 

The box has a hand rubbed oil finish, then polished with wax. There is no finish on the folder, it has only been polished.

 

 

This bone folder is hand carved using African Rosewood and inlayed with Mother of Pearl.. The folder itself is housed in a handcrafted box made of Walnut. Each folder and box come with a hand signed certificate, and each one is hand numbered (this is no. 55).

 

 

 

My tools are used by book artists such as Amy LeePard, Alicia Bailey, Rhonda Miller, Monica Holtsclaw, Larry Lou Foster, Mary Ann Sampson Doug Baulos, and Velma Bolyard. You may see my book binding tools in person at the Colophon Book Arts Supply, Kentuck Arts Center, and the Morgan Papermaking Conservatory.

 

I make each tool by hand, so no two tools will be exactly alike.

 

 

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Rosewood (bone) folder for book binding, box making or paper arts.

This is a very special folder and box.

A few weeks ago, I re-sawed a piece of African Rosewood that has been stored in my shop for the past three or four years. I knew by looking at the outside of the wood that it was a special piece, but once I cut the wood open I was amazed at how beautiful it was. The original purpose of the wood was to be used as fretboards for the banjos that I craft, but I thought that I would cut some bookbinder’s folders out of it as well. It was apparent that, since this was no ordinary wood, it should be housed in an extra special box.

I rarely use power tools, instead I shape wood with handtools such as planes, chisels and saws. The folder is shaped by hand. The Walnut box is hand dovetailed; the dovetails themselves are gently shaped to catch the eye and add interesting detai

The box has a hand rubbed oil finish, then polished with wax. There is no finish on the folder, it has only been polished.
