Antique-looking book covers


I have coworker retiring and our office wanted to give them copies of all the policy documents they were responsible for during their tenure. The goal was to make them look like antique books. Thanks to the Glowforge, I think we succeeded! The covers are made with Kraft-tech paper and leather, etched and scored on the Glowforge and artistically weathered with ink, paint, and shoe polish. Fun project, great results!


Beautiful job!


I was going to say these are excellent but, I’ve heard you’re not supposed to judge a book by it’s cover.


Ha! Very true


Amazing job!


Yes, I’d say you nailed it!


Ink, paint, and shoe polish … Nice finishes!
