I made as set of nice ones that went like this. Two 8"x6"x3/4" One 3"x6"x3/4" Five 3/8" dowel's 17" long. Now drill one of the 8x6's and the 3x6 with a 3/8" bit 1/2 inch deep with corresponding hole's. Now drill the other 8x6 at 7/16. detail all edges with a router. To put it together glue the dowels into the 3/8" drilled 8x6 slip the other 8x6 over the dowels without glue then glue the 3x6 on the other end of the dowels. The center 8x6 will slide on the dowels to hold the books up against the other 8x6. I hope this all makes sense. It makes a great looking book rack. I used my scroll saw on the red oak one I made my niece I cut out a treble cleft on both the larger pieces looked great.
These plans are for a small bookcase not bookends. I guess that you
will have to buy some more books.
