    I know some of you do bookmarks and sell well.
    I would like to know what thickness wood, type of wood , pattern source and selling price as well as finishing so I can offer them this 'winter visitor ' season for my fund raising project.

    Any help and suggestions are gratfully appreciated.

    I found out last season that they "Don't have any room" in their RV or mobile home for mounted portrait work. (Too bad they have no friends to give gifts to.)

    I make bookmarks out of 1/32 Finnish Birch plywood. I think I bought it from Sloans. I used some patterns from Volker Arnold. I also made a couple of my own. They are very simple designs. I spray them with Rustoleum semigloss clear. The attached design is one I did for our Methodist church. I donated a bunch of them. I have been using one of them for over a year now.
    It is about 3 inches tall. I tried a few different things but what workrd best for me was cutting all of the flame out.

        Old Dust,
        If you go to the search facility on this forum and enter "bookmarks' there are a number of threads with bookmark information.

          I have a question this topic in regards to what type of wood to use. Besides resawing wood to size or 1?32 bb ply wood what about wood veneers? would that work or is it too thin and brittle?

            Eric,
            I think you are going to want the extra strength of plywood for the bookmarks. The stuff that is available in 1/32 is really high quality. You will probably want to stack cut several at one time.
            I think even resawed hardwood will be pretty brittle. Of course, your hardwood may vary.

              With the 1/32 I use only plywood and stack 12. You could stack more but I don't want too many of one style.

                Then I need to be on hunt for 1/32 plywood around Montreal because so far I've only found it in the states. Any tips on where to find this plywood?

                  I haven't posted in a few months but I have been keeping up. I agree with what Mark is saying. To make everything for everyone would be very difficult. And I understand (from my wife's perspective) that computer apps are totally made for nerds - in her opinion. The breakdown is often between two of...

                  Yes I'm still using the one I built I did some upgrades to it though. I swapped out the pipes for linear motion rails and made the gantry out of aluminum. I guess if I were to upgrade now I would be looking for a full size machine that could do 4x8 sheets of plywood with an automatic tool changer but...

                  With all these new tool stories, I was working on and old one. About 9 years ago, I built a router table. Then, before it was finished, I had to start using it. And I have used it over the years. A couple of months ago, While I was contemplating cleaning, I looked at the machine and decided to finish...
