Wooden bookmarks make nice gifts for anyone who reads books. Pictured are two types I recently made using some veneers and scrap woods. I made them using methods used for making inlay banding but in the larger size indicated in the image. References I used:
R. F. Loeffler, Step-By-Step Inlay Banding Production, LVI Publications, 2001;
S. Latta, Making Ornamental Bandings, DVD from Lie-Nielsen Toolworks.
Latta also teaches a weekend course based on his DVD that I took at the Marc Adams Woodworking School. The light colored wood in both bookmarks is holly, with sandshading applied for the mark on the left. The other woods are mahogany, walnut, sycamore, and a black dyed veener.
