After being inspired by a couple of other projects here on LJ, I decided to try my hand a some laminated wood bookmarks. I had some scrap maple, purpleheart, and padauk and laminated them together and cut into strips. I sanded down these fancy tongue depressors, drilled a small hole in one end of each one for tassels and finished them with three coats of natural danish oil. Then I hung them to dry on my quickly made bookmark drying rack.

I think I made about 10-12 of these and gave most of them away. I enjoyed this so much that I hope to try it again very soon with different wood combinations.
