I built this set of Workshop Bookends from scrap 3/4” plywood and an old saw blade. The boards are 6” x 7.25” and I rounded off two corners of each board. It is assembled with glue and screws, and the saw blade is set in a groove with epoxy.

I attached non-skid shelf liner to the bottom with spray adhesive to keep them from sliding. My favorite feature is the built-in dividers for magazines and manuals. I think I need some more woodworking books though. lol

Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read anyway.

Gotta make some for my wife…the worlds greatest bibliophile.

Really cool idea- I especially like the small area for magazines… those things never stand up right!

Fun Fact- I have that same exact Woodworking book with the faux inlay going around the border, it was our college text for Material Processing I…. funny thing is I never really opened it until I was done with college. Go Figure
