Awkward title, I know, but it's kinda difficult to actually describe what's happening here. The World Woods Library is an effort to help folks collect a diverse catalog of wood species, a xylarium, in the form of wooden books.
Each species gets its own edition, with the English name carved into the spine, and the Latin genus and species on the cover.
Pretty amazing, but quite costly. So, we're thinking DIY on this one. The book shapes would be easy enough, but the carving more complex. Unless you've a CNC or laser cutter.
Anyone have one that would wanna collaborate on a remake?!
