Drying time

I’m waiting on the bole to finish drying before I put sizing on and lay on the silver for the first foredge so I thought it would be a good time for a brief update and notes to myself.

Ploughing the edges

A note here: I need to remember that I should NOT put on the end papers before I plow, always plough from the spine to the foredge and do put scrap paper in in place of the end paper as it is going to get shredded. Without the scrap paper, it will be the first and last pages of my signatures that get shredded and I don’t want that.
