Walnut wedding album

Over the summer one of my friends got married and for their wedding gift, I decided to make them a keepsake wedding album. The cover was based on their wedding invite and the inside cover was a quote from their song.

The leather in the biding was also engraved with elements from the cover.

I had never made a binding this way before, but it turned out fantastic and is super strong and well.

I cant wait to make some more of these and add them to my product offering.

Really beautiful. I especially love the binding. I want to make an album for my Duck Stamp collection and that would make a great cover.

That’s awesome. You have so many different crafting aspects inside this one project. Way to incorporate wood and leather, and binding-wow, very skilled.

I think it’s lovely you used their seeing incineration for inspiration.

Excited to get mine! The entire purchase is for our daughters wedding. Going to make a lot of items. But never thought to finish it off with an album. Great idea

Sorry for the delay getting back to you. I haven’t been on the site in months.

I don’t really have any tutorials that i followed, just a lot of trail and error. This one was just contact cement and it has been holding up really well so far.

This is beautiful!!!

Welcome Danielle! How long have you had your GF or are you waiting on a delivery? There are some amazing projects here… Looking forward to seeing what you create. :slight_smile:

Hi!!!

I JUST got it up and running yesterday and I’m beyond excited to see what I can do with this device!!! At my previous job, we used an Kongsberg Esko cutter for prototyping packaging, but I was able to do some fun things with it! Now I have this in my home and my brain is exploding with ideas! Can’t wait to share :slight_smile: :star_struck:
