This was a fun project, Robin and I really enjoyed making this spell book together! I assembled and carved the pieces and Robin did all the painting. I also made a small Walnut wand to go inside. The book/box is 12″ x 9″ x 3 1/4″

Hi my name is Carl Jacobson,
I started woodworking with my grandfather as a young boy. I continued woodworking through high school, and started woodturning after seeing a turned project in a friends shop. My fondest memories are working with my grandfather in his wood shop. Being able to share our passion for woodworking, ties it all together.

    Very cool Carl

  2. Leonard Greenpaw on November 20, 2022 at 4:55 am

    WAIT Hold up just a minute. What was that wire you used to cut those grooves on the wand?! That was cool!

  3. Brenda Feliciano on November 20, 2022 at 4:55 am

    Thatโ€™s so cool ๐Ÿ˜Ž love the wand the eye ๐Ÿ‘ pretty amazing

  4. Peter Brown on November 20, 2022 at 4:57 am

  6. Empathy on November 20, 2022 at 4:59 am

    This is one of the best hand crafted wooded spell books Iโ€™ve ever seen.
    I absolutely love it.๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿง™โ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿง™โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฎ
    Robin and yourself are true artists.๐Ÿ’œ

  7. Nanuq 83 on November 20, 2022 at 5:01 am

    What a fun project for you two! It turned out spooktacular! ๐Ÿ‘ป

    I would LOVE to have this! It reminds me of the book from Evil Dead, my Dad has a mechanical one that growls and snaps like in the movie. As cool as it is (and it’s freakin cool), I love the whole Magic Spell box with a wand. I am a witch at heart (I put a spell on you… and now the box is mine!) haha ๐Ÿ–ค

  8. Ufuk Can on November 20, 2022 at 5:03 am

    Wow! Nice work master ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Marcel's Workshop on November 20, 2022 at 5:04 am

    Cool stuff Carl.

  10. Be Inspired with Dominic on November 20, 2022 at 5:07 am

    That eye is really something, and I like the hidden wand inside. The small size works perfectly for that! Thanks for sharing, Carl!

  11. Dallas Woiken on November 20, 2022 at 5:07 am

    Awsome job Carl and robin looks great

  12. Dennis Davids on November 20, 2022 at 5:07 am

    I have a question on how make a 4Ft by 4ft look like a book it will be a christmas lawn scenery the letters are stenialed trying to make the end of the plywood look like the pages thank you for your import

  13. Downeast Thunder Creations on November 20, 2022 at 5:08 am

    Thanks Carl. I absolutely loved watching that project. My daughter is majoring in cinema/film making in college, and is a big Harry Potter fan. A project like this would make a great gift to give to her. I can just picture the reactions she might get from fellow students visiting her dorm. Robin did an awesome job with the paint scheme and your faux page lines with wood burner was a nice touch. Thanks again for the ideas and incentive.

  14. FYFGT on November 20, 2022 at 5:09 am

    Pretty cool book but please use a push stick!

  15. Andreas Achleitner on November 20, 2022 at 5:09 am

    Great Job! Greetings to Robin!

  21. Fred McIntyre on November 20, 2022 at 5:19 am

  22. Sascha Funk on November 20, 2022 at 5:22 am

    Cool job. I have a question. Can you make the Book from the Horror Movie "Evil Dead" The Book of Dead called Necronomicon ?

  23. Adam Quincey on November 20, 2022 at 5:23 am

  24. SK Krafts on November 20, 2022 at 5:24 am

  25. Phill Moxham. on November 20, 2022 at 5:29 am

    Excellent Carl.

  26. Mama C on November 20, 2022 at 5:29 am

    Is the nutrition label for mustard the same as for glue? ๐Ÿ˜‚ I canโ€™t wait for my husband to consume the mustard and mayonnaise so I can use the bottles for glue.

    The โ€œ spell bookโ€ looks extremely fantastic! What an incredibly creative idea. Very nice use of techniques to make your project look so realistic … and a bit creepy!

  27. Our Million Adventures on November 20, 2022 at 5:30 am

    This turned out beautifully!

  28. Vicky Leathwood on November 20, 2022 at 5:31 am

  38. The Muz Shop on November 20, 2022 at 5:43 am

    Great team work!! Who are you going to cast a spell on?๐ŸงŸโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿง›โ€โ™‚๏ธ

  39. Sercho on November 20, 2022 at 5:43 am

    Lol its a box not a book

  40. Charlie Byerly on November 20, 2022 at 5:44 am

    hey Carl, great video! great use of appropriate music, and good low volume. and good info. Good long lasting prop. fun if you made one with a moving eye like in hocus pocus. Really like the soft themed music too so many of these craft project videos have annoying music and way too much yaking before they get to the actual project. keep up the good work!

  41. ryan rohr on November 20, 2022 at 5:45 am

    Plywood would look a lot like page layers

  42. T N on November 20, 2022 at 5:45 am

    About the only way that you could have made it better was to make wooden hinges

  43. Tomas Arguinzoni on November 20, 2022 at 5:45 am

    Wow wow beautiful job my friend thank you for sharing great video ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿป

  44. Sifeng's Pet on November 20, 2022 at 5:47 am

    oh my god.. i really lost my words
    it’s so beautiful and artistic!
    i can’t speak english well so I can’t say how much is pretty
    thank you, you did REALLY WELL

  45. Brian Prusa on November 20, 2022 at 5:48 am

    Very cool Carl, nice paint job Robin!

  46. ldybgd on November 20, 2022 at 5:48 am

    looks great. I’d personally put the wand holder on the inside front, so you can still use the bottoms for a book

  47. Paka Belo on November 20, 2022 at 5:48 am

    long time, but he dont come, lol.

  48. MrVlandus on November 20, 2022 at 5:51 am


  49. Joshua Mcalister on November 20, 2022 at 5:52 am

    What hinges and holder for the wand did you use? Great project

  50. Sumo's Projects on November 20, 2022 at 5:53 am

    Gโ€™day mate, very nice piece youโ€™ve created, I heard youโ€™ve German heritage, from what region ?
