Skewer Bound Book

Last night in the workshop I made a prototype of this just to see how I managed making it… and today I made another one live on Ustream and also remembered to hit the Record Button!

The Blue Book (made last night)

Then onto the book made this morning, which is the one featured on the Ustream tutorial..
