      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.

        I tried a house vac once for a dust collector. It was prone to clogging the lines and when I tried to put a cyclone can on it the vacuum collapsed the garbage can.

        I found this pattern in Steves catalog and freehanded a vase form. This one may appeal to the folks that bought the butterfly vase.

        Sorry took so long to answer. The brown vase I added butterfly instead of doing wood burning. Wanted to keep them so they would appeal to several people. I sold all of them to a flower shop....

        Being younger than 65, with no qualifying health conditions, I don't anticipate getting a vaccine for some time. My wife works for the school district, so she may be eligible in the next phase. President Biden says that supply will be sufficient for all US adults by end of May. I'm hoping that proves...
