      I once had a boy scout wanting to make book ends for his sister named Kat - so I walked him through the project. Book ends are basically L shaped objects facing each other. He chose to go with the basic design and put a silhouette of a cat inside the L. Any scroll figure can be put into an L shape bookend, or into the tall part of the L.

      As for functional book ends which can keep books standing - 1st, make sure the end doesn't slide. Glue a piece of rubber (carpet pad etc) on the bottom. You can also make the tall end slant out a bit so the weight of the books will put pressure on the rubber pad. That Scout and I had made his book ends out of Corian so it had natural weight.

      This doesn't point you to a specific design, but I hope it helps. Feel free to ask further ideas if needed! I'm more of a wood worker then a scroller, but I love incorporating scroll work into my furniture. It makes it unique.
      It's never hot or cold in NH, it's always seasonal!

        I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

        Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

        He’s gotten me through some pretty tough times and always has my back so It’s the least I can do. Good thing I had the freezer stocked! That has been a time saver. I made a pot of chili on Sunday and got 6 meals out of it! As for payback, I’m getting a new shed in the spring! I had to do my flap...

        We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
