I call these little gadgets "My Book Buddy". They are one-handed book holders, handmade in my Colorado shop. No computers, lasers or other forms of automation are used in making these unique gifts.
This one is made from African Wenge, a naturally dark brown, almost black wood.
My Book Buddys measure approximately 5.0" long x 1.5" tall x 0.5" thick, and are very light weight at around 11 grams (0.4 ounces). As they are 100% handmade, each Book Buddy will be unique, and may vary slightly from the photos. The thumb holes measure a little larger than 7/8" in diameter and should accommodate even the largest hands.
A Book Buddy will make the perfect gift for that special book worm in your life. Take them to church to hold hymnals open, or use them while reading your favorite book at the library, coffee shop or anywhere else. Fits perfectly in your pocket, bag or purse.
A gift bag and signed card will be included with every Book Buddy. Order several and save on shipping.
The shop will be closed while I go fishing - reopening in early August.
I make things that spin & go round - stuff that nobody else makes - eclectic, unique, interesting and always different is what I strive for. Many of my lathe turnings are made from exotic and hard to find woods, often embellished with Rose Engine turnings, laminations and encapsulations. Enjoy your visit.
