Books about trees made from the trees

I found this site about xylotheks, which are book-like boxes made from the trees they describe.  Inside the 'books' are leaves, seeds, flowers, fruit, etc from the tree the box is made from.  I thought it was rather cool.

That's a pretty cool deal.  Reminds me of an old man that lives down the road.  He has rooms in his house that has been turned over to storage.  In these rooms he has samples of woods and pieces of those woods for later use.  And his samples, they are small turnings to show the grain and color of the various woods.  Sounds really cool.  I'll be going out to see him sometime soon.  He's telling me that he's about to quit woodworking.  Getting too old.  I'm not so sure that he's getting too old, but he may indeed be loosing his eyesight.  Anyway, I'll just have to see for myself what the deal is and get myself in line for any hand-me-downs that may be going out.   8)
