Captain’s Log Instructable

As a writer, I find it impossible to travel anywhere without a pen and blank paper. I never know when an idea might strike and it’s a downright shame to let inspiration escape because of a lack of materials to capture it.

The current notepad I carry was a gift from a former coworker when I moved from Dallas to Seattle. The cover design is fitting for the particular kind of work that we did, but by no means Steampunk. I love it, but once it becomes full of notes and thoughts, I’ll be looking to replace it.

To create a notebook/sketchpad that has that lovely Steampunk look to it, consider creating the Captain’s Log Steambook, an Instructable by bryanwithaytx.

I particularly like this design because it allows for paper refills, making your log a creation designed to last. It’s also nice because the wooden cover provides a hard surface upon which to scribble notes, which is helpful when there isn’t a table or desk nearby.
