Re: [BKARTS] Gluing Boxes Square - Using a jig to help



Brad,

I've sent under separate cover, a compilation of 
57 references about box making for books that 
you may find useful. 

Many of them point to the contents of
Carlson, Lage et. al.
"Boxes for the protection of rare books: 
Their design and construction"
Washington DC: Library of Congress (1994)
that Don Drake mentioned.

| Brad,
| 
| I use framers' jigs in all my boxmaking: four pieces of threaded rod with
| corner blocks. Makes the job go a lot easier. X-Acto makes one, and I'm sure
| there are others available. I also build the shell on a piece of mylar or
| release paper.
| 
| Good luck,
| 
| Don Rash
