This morning was spent much like last Wednesday – I glued coptic journal covers using two more sheets of the paper I got from Chena River Marblers.
I was bummed to find that the purple marbled paper was grain short, so I could only get one journal out of it. Poo.
Things got more exciting once I went on a field trip.
Me? Jealous? Yes. Very.
The thing is beauteous. In addition to having a larger cutting length (31.25″), it has a rocking foot-operated clamp. My foot never gets to help when I cut board at home. 🙁
17 boards later…
I didn’t cut the boards all the way down to finished sizes – I didn’t want to kill the blade and I can finish the rest at home on my inferior 1071.
I think I’ve become a bad Kutrimmer mommy.
There was a fun and gross discovery while cutting the bookboard – a smushed, bloody bug.
I performed several Google searches to determine whether smushed bugs are either archival or acid-free, but had no luck.
If you have any knowledge on the subject, please share! 😉
