I thought I’d share one of my old projects made back in the late 1960’s. It was done in one of my shop classes for a project. Back then Playboy Bunnies were cute.
These looked better back then when the brass inlays were bright and shiny. They tarnished even with a coat of spray lacquer.
I also “jeweled” the part of the bookends that went under the books. Since this was such a small area, I think I used a pencil eraser chucked in a drill press. A regular pencil will make 1/4 inch swirls and the fatter pencils that younger kids use would make 1/2 inch swirls.
Felt is glued on the bottoms.
Hope you enjoyed looking at these. Comments welcomed.
Thanks for looking.
