Arch-Top Bookends

With a few scraps of wood, some 3/4" MDF, and a piece of veneer, you're about set to go on the bookends. But I did need a couple other items.

FAUX FINISH. The special finishes that I used on the bookends are a product called American Accents made by Rust-Oleum. It comes in a variety of different colors and "effects."

ANTI-SLIP TAPE. I used a self-adhesive non- slip tape made by 3Mon the bottoms of the bookends. You can find the non-slip tape and the Rust-Oleum finishes at hardware stores.

ROUTER BITS. For the bookend moldings I used a slightly smaller classical cove and bead bit (Amana #54132).
