DIY: Section Punch Tool by Marenne DIY: Section Punch Tool by Marenne
This is a very handy tool for bookbinding. It makes punching holes in your sections a lot easier. The 45 degree recess was made by a local carpenter using his rotating circular saw. (It took 3 minutes!) The top part was destroyed in the process, so I made that part out of cardboard. Different versions allow for variation.

Feel free to use this as a guide to create your own!

I don't really know what mill borde is. But if it's some kind of cardboard I think you could always try. Other solution is to grab a phonebook, open it up at the middle and use that...

We call it Escaboard :P But to the point. I once made a cutting mold out of several layers glued together, with elegant curves (a lot of sanding), so I usuppose it can be done. Not with folding though, I don't think that'll withstand the pressure...
