These are a set of bookends that were made out of some of the left over Ambrosia Maple from a hope chest project I just built, and the contrasting wood is some walnut I had in the scrap pile. My daughter is turning 16 in December and she wanted a hope chest for her birthday, and bookends for Christmas. The bottom has felt on it, and the pictures are behind some plexi. I slapped a couple of generic pics in them, I am sure Johnny Depp and Tim Tebow will end up in there. Go Figure :) She is out of the house right now so I was able to snap a couple of pics of them before I box and wrap them.

A special thanks to Steve Ramsey (Woodworking for Mere Mortals) for the design and the templates!

Thanks for looking!

Nice bookends. Fantastic way of using cutoffs.
Thanks for sharing and thanks to Steve as well.
