Under my thumb - stocking stuffers

Thanks to the great idea from Shopdog I was able to make a couple of batches of these book holders as stocking stuffers. I had some scrap walnut and cherry that I would have otherwise tossed in the bin. I made the holes different sizes so people can select one that fits their thumb just so.

mbs,

Happy to see that someone else is making them…lots of them.
You know a lot of book readers.
I hope they are well received.

Most of my crew are into the e-readers but they still pick up a book now and then.

Great idea, Shopdog.

These look great and good finishing on them, but I feel foolish asking: how do they work?

MIP – if you’re asking how are they supposed to be used please follow the link to shopdog’s post in Blue on the first post.

If you’re asking how well do they work I can’t tell you yet because I haven’t tried it out. I just finished them and we have too many people around to give it an honest trial.

My belief is that we like to hold books in various positions. This particular tool would be good when we want to hold it in one hand with our thumb between the pages.

I hope I answered your question.
