Thought I would post these as well….......... this was just a fun project that I wanted to see how they would turn out. I’m actually quite happy with them.

Dimensions: 6.25×1.5×1/16

Yeh, you guessed it…........... Watco Danish oil and Black Bison wax.

Thought about drilling a hole and putting a “tassle” on them…. what do you think?

Beautiful. I vote for no tassel. Don’t want to distract from that gorgeous wood.

Fantastic! Love them just the way they are. Let the wonderfull figure and colors speek for themselves. No Tassles!

Keep it up.

Great idea!

Did you run these thru the jointer or planer to get down to the 1/16” thikness?

Lookin’ good! I made a similar batch for presents. Some with tassels and some without. We had family over and I laid them out and let everyone pick (no fighting ;-)). It was close but more folks (non-woodworkers) preferred the ones with tassels.

Great looking bookmarks. Could also be marketed to society doctors as tongue depressors, LOL. I’m for the tassles. Not because they will look better, but because that way you can leave the bookmark in the book while reading it without it slipping out. Whenever I lay down a bookmark I can never find it again.

I like them without, but can see where the tassles would come in handy as stefang said. Either way they look great. Cool idea that I might have to use at my next craft show. That is, if you don’t mind of course.

They are gorgeous. I vote YAY for the tassles, unless the markers are longer than the length of a book. I have a hard time finding bookmarks in my book without tassles to tug on. You could even go to Michaels’s and get some neat beads for the end of the cord instead of tassels.

Very cool, you should do some shaped like surf boards, they kinda look like the old long board surf boards in the 60s, on those you can put an ankle strap looking tassel, should be big hits in Cali.
