YouTube Tuesday: BookshelfWorld

In line with the book nook I shared yesterday, I decided to share this YouTube channel which features only book nooks. I am hoping this creator will make more nooks as the ones they’ve shared are wonderful!

Be sure to let the creator know how you felt about this build, good or bad by commenting and not just choosing thumbs up or down. They would really appreciate the feedback I’m sure.

See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!!

My First Book Nook!

I’ve watched quite a few YouTubers making book nooks, and I decided to try my hand at making one as well. I didn’t know anything about painting, making book nooks, putting in mini lights, or anything else that might help me with this build. I researched, asked questions, and watched what other people did. Then, more importantly, I just did it. I just started making a plan on what I want to make and how I was going to make it.

I gathered all the materials, and I began to put the thing together. Some things didn’t work at first, and I had to backtrack. Still, I moved forward and didn’t give up. Now the infinity mirror effect I tried didn’t work the way I wanted, but I have learned why. With this knowledge, I can try again in the future with more confidence it will work the second time.

I didn’t take pictures of the build itself, only the end results. It wasn’t something I planned to teach people to make or anything. I just built as best I could over the course of three weeks – most of the time spent waiting to get materials like the faerie lights. I did take pictures of the end result, and I welcome feedback.

I am a big Stephen King fan, and I thought this would make a nice first try as well as a great addition to my bookshelves once I’m able to have them again. I think I did okay. Feel free to comment on the build and what you think of it.

Note: the box is not made of wood. I had some friends tell me when I showed them the pictures they thought the wood box was great. It’s actually the box Ramen Noodles come is – the 12 pack box. 🙂 I had to actually use two boxes to make the final one because I used the second one for parts, including the right wall.

I had a lot of fun making this nook, and I learned a lot while doing so. I plan to make another one inspired by the book, IT, but I won’t be doing it right away because I have a bunch of projects still waiting to be done.

YouTube Tuesday: North of the Border

I found North of the Border when I fell down the rabbit hole of book nook creation. I had started out looking at videos teaching me how to make my own book nook,and it went downhill from there. I got lost for hours looking at videos related to book nooks, and North of the Border was one of the top five I liked when I finally freed myself from the maze.

Adam is the man behind the hands and voice of North of the Border. Strangely enough, the name of his channel only makes sense to those who live in North America – he lives in Canada. Still, it’s part of the man’s quirky sense of humor and laid back style. He makes “lots of tiny nerdy things” – his words, not mine. For only being on YouTube for about six months, the channel has over nine thousand subscribers. Yes, he’s that good!! Don’t take my word for it however! Check out the newest book nook/diorama he’s created mashing up LOTR and Star Wars!

Gandalf vs the Balrog/Rancor

I hope you enjoy watching and listening while he makes some seriously fun stuff.
