The basic experiment is, it seems to me, a success. What I'm getting from a very slap-dash recycling effort is paper I wouldn't hesitate to use as stationary with friends or customers, which also seems to be as durable as most of the hand-made cover stock available to me. There are experiments still to be done with sizing, and more precise sorts of dyeing. It's going to be awhile before I can deal with fibrous yard waste. Etc. But the dollar-store paper-making rig works, and I have a couple of friends who look like they are ready to try their hand.
