I have a daily habit of working on side projects, and I've come to appreciate the benefits of tracking that habit out in the open. If I'm doing work on a software project, I track that on GitHub. If it's more hands-on, I like to post an update here.

  1. Got some unexpected workshop time yesterday and started working on notebook #4. Tried some new techniques for preparing the signatures, and got these done faster than with any previous notebook build. Very satisfying, to see this kind of progress!

  2. Finished notebook #3 last weekend. This one's got a bookmark! Hoping to start working on #4 this week.

  3. I talked about the Screw Pad before, which was a product I intended to sell. I no longer plan to do that, so to wrap up the project, I decided to make it open source.

    Check out the repository, if you're interested.

  4. Got a delivery from Schmedt. Rolls of mull, ribbon for bookmarks, and flexible ribbon to keep the notebook closed. Oh, and a brush I want to try for applying PVA glue. Looking forward to trying those over the next few notebook builds.
