French speaking families dot the west end of 9th. Street here in Saskatoon. My friend Shan wanted to share books with her neighbours and chose a french theme for a Little Free Library. I agreed to create one quite some time ago and just managed to finish and install it yesterday.
The finial is turned from Maple and painted along with the rest of the library and the door knob is turned from a Tagua nut.
I used a wood burner to create a brick effect on the sides and back. The tower is covered with cedar shingles that I shaped from cedar shakes.
The hinges are made out of Walnut with a brass pin.
Shan registered the library with the official LFL site and had the plaque printed with French and English instructions.
