A few weeks ago over on Facebook, Dale Weinke posted a picture of a cool little pair of bookends that double as picture frames.
I thought they were very clever so I decided to make a pair myself. I made mine using a series of curves and changed the frame itself to a simple circle. Adding a rigid piece of aluminum under each base adds to its stability.
If you would like to make a pair of these, here is a full-sized template you can download.
