This example is a test I did with a similarly sized book from goodwill (before i commit my journal) - I was quite pleased with the results - I will have to measure carefully so there is no overhang on the living edge to catch on anything for the real deal - this is 1/8 inch baltic birch. It is glued to the board with wood glue - you have to glue it flat open so the live edge stretches over the binding when closed - i may add an elastic band and wood button for closure. (ps i did not glue the living hinge portion, not sure if that was the best method but i thought the stress of being glued would not allow it to open and close correctly and may split the hinge)
