Small Bench Style Book Holder (Bookshelf)

Write a review


If you're a book lover like me, you'll enjoy using this whimsical bench to hold a handful of your smaller books. The bench sits nicely on a shelf and looks more visually interesting than your standard bookends.

Project Details

I designed this one to work with Glowforge Proofgrade Thick Maple or Walnut Plywood, but you can easily adjust the 10 slots to fit whatever material you choose (just be sure it's sturdy enough to hold the weight of the books).

8" wide, 6.5" tall, 10.75" long.

  • 0.179"
  • 0.21" (in file named BBLD Book Bench Files
  • 0.22" (in file named BBLD Book Bench Files

ALL MATERIALS VARY IN THICKNESS FROM BATCH TO BATCH, so you will need to measure your materials and adjust the slots if necessary. ALWAYS measure your materials before cutting to be sure the fit will be what you expect.

I use LocTite GO2 glue for all of my projects.
