Here’s a simple stocking stuffer for the book readers on your list.
They are about 3 1/4” by 1/2”...a good way to use those small scraps of wood.
The size of the hole is variable, depending on the thumb size. My fat thumb required a 7/8” hole, I think 3/4” should suffice for most.
One is mahogany, and the other is tulip wood.
I cut them out with my scroll saw

I borrowed the book from my wife, in case you were wondering :-)

Thanks for looking

Neat idea! This looks like something that would sell at a craft show.

Hey Steve, cool idea and great stocking stuffer. My neighbor is always reading a book outside when weather permits. This will help her on those windy days. Thanks for sharing.

As a side note, If you’re gonna make one…round over the hole before
you cut the profile…obviously. Except it didn’t occur to me with my first one.
