Hey LJ!

As some may know I use maily power tools when woodworking, although I do used often use hand tools when it is appropriate. So after countless request I took the time to do a video where I make some VERY simple bookends using handtools. It took MORE time and I wont be converting any time soon, although I did find the experience very therapeutic.

Alex, Thanks for posting. This project is in my short list, plan to have my daughter help me make some bok ends to tame her book shelf in her bedroom.
