Another video made by one of our customers/followers. This time it was Sarah Miner (@minerbookco on Instagram), showing how our corner cutting jigs are used. Check all the different types and sizes at our Etsy store.
This short video shows how iBookBinding's section punching cradle for bookbinders is used. This is the standard version with digits imprinted in a contrast color for better visibility. However, the same principle applies to all versions of our punching tools.
The second part of the episode with Stepan Chizhov acting as a guest is dedicated to more technical aspects of how iBookBinding works. We talk some nerdy stuff about 3d-printing in general and about making money with 3d-printing.
Our book scanning cradle for smartphones and DSLR cameras was just updated to the Mark V version. Besides some minor changes, the most important thing is that the whole structure is almost perfectly stable now!
One of the latest additions to our shop, a 4-in-1 corner mitering jigs and a straightedge. A tool of this sort was requested by a customer. And after a bit of thought and experimentation, I made this design.
Last Friday, I had to make some paper to test recently designed and printed papermaking molds with the Japanese wave pattern. One of the molds was a novelty for our shop — it's designed to make A6-sized sheets of paper.
I've been looking for some solution to protect items we sell at our shop during shipping. There were a couple of times when corners cutting jigs and some other items were broken during delivery. And here's my handcrafted solution.
It's time to announce a major addition to our section punching tools collection. Major as in huge, because this tool is massive! We've been quiet during the winter holidays. But now it's time to share something special with you!
I often get asked: what is the quality of the scans made with our book scanning system? Here are some samples made with my smartphone Samsung Galaxy S9. In the samples, the right part is approximately 4x magnified.
This weekend was very tiring and intense. But these two days were among the most inspiring and wonderful working days of the year. All because I participated in the Book Arts Fair in Leiden (Netherlands.)
