We’ve had some bookends on Geek Native before such as this incredible (but expensive) sandworm, cute dinosaurs and friends and even DIY efforts like the LEGO Two Towers. In conclusion? I clearly have a thing for bookends!
They’re art with a practical value and immediate use in my defence. If you’re a tabletop gamer, you may well have heard the late-night thunk of hardbacks falling over. It gets annoying, and bookends are the solution.
Step forward WoodenStork who do bookends and book nooks in lovely detail.
Lord of the Rings bookends
I’m calling this design “Lord of the Rings” I note WoodenStork do not, and I’m sure that’s because it’s an entirely original design.
There’s free shipping and all that, a delivery window of about two weeks, but I’ve done my Christmas shopping, so I get to admire the detail.
The Minsk based crafter doesn’t say, but I assume these are laser cut designs.
Harry Potter bookends
I’m calling this design “Harry Potter” and note that WoodenStork does not, and… oh, wait, this sounds familiar.
We have a castle (or magic school) in the background and adventure in the foreground.
The design here is 6.7 inches tall (which might be higher than some of your books), 5.1 wide and 4.1 inches deep.
Jurassic Park bookends
WoodenStork calls this design “Jurassic Park”, although I can hardly see any resemblance to the book series or movies by the same name.
The wood is sanded natural birch plywood, and this doesn’t risk a trip in the mail without protection. Instead, the bookend is a DIY kit, and you’ll need to buy some glue to put it together.
