Here are the details on how to make the bookmark display rack I’ve been showing you on my Instagram account. I’ve designed this to hold my bookmarks, which are 2.5 inches by 8.5 inches. If your bookmarks are smaller, you could trim down the size.
1 segments of 2×4 board, 6 in. long: [A] beveled along one side.
4 rectangular pieces of paneling: (note by using paneling the end display will be lighter than if you used thicker wood). [B] 6 in. x 10 in. [C] 6 in. x 5 in. [D] 2 side pieces of paneling, with one angled side. Each should be 9 ¼ in. tall, width at the bottom should be 4 ⅞ in. and width at the top should be 2 ¾ in.
1 piece of decorative molding, at least 4 ½ in. wide: [E] 6 ½ in. long My molding was only 4 in wide, so I added a narrow strip of wood to make it wide enough.
1 narrow strip of wood (1 ¼ x ¼ in.): [F] 6 ¾ in long, beveled 20 degrees at one end. This is the divider in the middle. I cut mine from a scrap of hardwood.
1 rectangle of plexiglass or clear plastic pane: [G] 6 in x 8 in.
Also needed: 1 in. buglehead (drywall) screws, at least 8 small finishing nails, at least 2 Wood putty Wood glue Clamps Sanding paper (fine to superfine) Spray paint (or whatever paint/finish you desire).
The instructions may look daunting at first, but it is pretty simple! Letters are given on the parts, so you know which piece goes where.
