My Mom has been hinting for bookends for quite awhile now, for her cookbooks. Just couldn’t come up with the right design. Not sure this is the winning design – but I will find out tomorrow…(Celebrating Mom’s day on Friday – schedules are tough these days!).
I used Sapele for main boards and book-matched laminations of Padauk, Wenge and Mahogany. All edges beveled at 15⁰.
The brass was from a door kick plate I picked up at Menards.
Four coats of blond Shellac and buffed on the Beall Wood Buff.
Pretty fun, simple project. Thanks for looking.
