There were lot of srap wood from recent workshop projects, so this is my way to use them.
Finger book holders made of beech, oak, walnut and mahogany. Some single layer, some combined.
The hole is 25 mm (1 inch). They are all different dimensions (hight and lenght) and shapes.
They are all form my friends and relatives who read books regulary.

Neat idea, Ivan. But how can you read that book? It’s all foreign. I’m joking.
