More Christmas-Tree Books

This Christmas tree made from books takes a bit more effort, compared to the one from a few days ago, and a little taste for book destruction. Juniper Books found themselves with a surplus of green fabric-bound books, whose contents had been digitized and thus the paper was headed for the dumpster anyhow, and decided to make a Christmas tree. The edges of some books went into the bandsaw to make the traditional arrow-point branches, while the rest make up the body of the tree. Via Juxtapoz.

A Book-tree Merry Christmas

Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful, and as long as you've got a nice bunch of books that you're ready to stack, you can make yourself a book Christmas tree! I found out about this fun craftiness only minutes before leaving the house to go buy a real Christmas tree, and just for a few moments I considered unloading the bookshelves…but then I gave it some thought, and I figured I'd be happier vacuuming up needles than having to reshelve everything before New Year's.
