DIY Book Holder – The Perfect Woodworking Project for Book Lovers

DIY Book Holder – The Perfect Woodworking Project for Book Lovers

I’ll show you how to make a super useful DIY Book Holder two different ways in this video. Not only do they look attractive sitting on your end table or night stand, but I mean it when I say they’re useful. You can save your place in your book just by placing it over the holder, SINGLE HANDEDLY! Plus, the fancy version, has a neat little drawer for storing your reading glasses, pens, pencils, etc. They may looks simple, but these are more challenging woodworking projects than you might think.

    I just found your channel this week and immediately subscribed. I am enjoying catching up on some of your other videos. The wood that you used in the fancy version of this build was spectacular!! Love it! Also, it’s fun to watch videos from a fellow Oregonian. 🙂

    After getting this stuff few days ago, I could hardly put it down afterwards [Link Here== *TopFineWoodworking. Com* ]. There are lots of colorful pictures, with detailed descriptions of every step in the project. You will never miss your way using this plan. It was more than I expected.?

    Another great project Cody! You definitely have been rocking these small builds. Yeah and it’s grewt to show that mistakes happen. I now the feeling of cutting everything and then find out it doesn’t fit is is backwards….

    wow, that looks amazing! You really gave me the urge to make something similar myself (would of course credit you if I made something similar over on my channel). +1 subscriber for that video.

    Felt your pain with the multiple attempts at getting the angle right. I like the end result, looks cool with the brass accent…

    What flat tooth table saw blade do you prefer? I’ve been shopping for one for some time and I can’t seem to settle on one.

    edit: something I learned from Bob @ I Like to Make stuff when dealing with a miter that doesn’t quite match up like you want.. try using a round screwdriver shank, rolled with light pressure perpendicular down the joint to round the edges of the wood towards each other. Have you tried this method?

    Smart idea! And execution, too. Waiting for a shop first aid kit build. That would mount on the wall next to one of your clipboards. (Maybe with a sign "x days without an accident"?)

  15. Beeley Wood on February 20, 2023 at 6:01 am

    I like it a lot. A bit of carving on the front on it could be a great Deathly Hollows piece.

    Dude, I’m a wood Carver. I’m happy if I manage to not get blood on things. Those little cuts you showed , minor. We work with sharp things, cuts happen, and we go on. Be careful, but keep on creating!
