So, my wife is a bookworm. She’s also very Pinterested… Put these two together and my project list grows. Hence, these lil guys. Pretty cool actually. I’ve used Walnut, pine, and Aromatic Cedar so far. The cedar is really nice, has a very cool grain pattern, and the smell is fantastic. I sanded them to 320 after shaping them with my Dremel. Then finished with paste wax.

WOW! You did a terrific job on those. My niece requested some of those so I made her some, but mine were pretty rough compared to yours. I made four for her, on a couple I glued felt in where the thumb goes, she didn’t like it but I thought it was a good idea. On another one I put a lanyard it so it could hang around her neck, she liked that. After seeing yours I thinks I will make her a couple more and put a more effort into it! Very nice.

Great job! But you’re going to have to teach the Pinterest addict to make things!

Very nicely finished. I’m surprised that there is such a demand for these -
