Re: Making lipped clam-shell boxes



The Library of Congress's design for the lipped clam-shell box or what they
call double-tray box (as well many other rehousing designs) can be found in
"Boxes for the Protection of Rare Books: Their Design and Construction"
compiled by Margaret Brown.  A search of the archives of this list should
provide info as to who has reprinted this book.

It's a great resource.
