What’s better than a table? A shelf; just a whole lot more horizontal space to clutter. Make one yourself with four 96″ 2×4″ studs, two 96″ 1×2″ pine strips, a 7/8″ 2×4′ pine ply, a Kregg jig, and a bunch of screws.
I started making booklets for myself a few years ago. It all started because I couldn’t find the notebook I wanted to use. I prefer a nice, slick paper with grey dots in a grid pattern. Blank printer paper was fine, but the ends of my sentences would always trail off. So I experimented with several techniques for binding paper. I’m still experimenting (I don’t take as many notes as I did in college, so it’s slow going…) Binding paper can be as simple or as complex as you are willing to make it. In this post, we’ll discuss three ways, in increasing complexity, to binding paper.
