Wooden Bookmarks

Here is a quick and simple project that makes good use of leftover lumber.  Take a piece of scrap wood and profile it to the size of bookmark that you would like to make.  Make a curved cut through the piece and glue a thin strip of a contrasting color of wood between the two pieces.  Once this has dried, make another curved cut through the block and piece together more contrasting woods.  The resulting block can be cleaned up and then cut into individual bookmarks.  Finish with shellac and you should get many bookmarks from each blank.. These make excellent presents and take little time and materials to make.
