Just a simple pair of bookends that I made for my Dad for Christmas. They are made out of poplar, with a polyurethane finish.

AJ, I made a pair of bookends for my father while I was in Junior High….......He is still using them and I am 68 years old. Your father will too! Nothing is better then a gift when a little sweat is put into it!

They look Great!

Thanks for sharing

AJ, these look a lot like the other set of bookends you posted, but much better. More little details like the chamfers. Also, your rabbets look quite a bit cleaner this time around. Way to keep improving!
