A cynical take on making bookends...
There has been quite a lot of videos on YouTube about making bookends. The whole bookends thing was started by Jack Houweling, who approached a number of woodworkers on YouTube, including me, about us all making a project building bookends and uploading them the same day. I couldn't think of a take on bookends that was both interesting and practical, so Being the Curmudgeon that I am, I declined the invitation.
But eight other YouTubers (as far as I know) did prepare and publish a video making Bookends on April 11 (2014). See below:

And then there were even more bookends....Those eight videos on making bookends inspired a few more woodworkers, who weren't part of the initial bunch, to make their own videos on making bookends. with so many videos, I was finally inspired by my own angle on making bookends, so I made a video.
To me, a bookends are useless decorative knickknacks. My problem is not
that my shelves have too much room so the books fall over. The problem is that I have
too many books for the shelves. So a pair of bookends is the last thing that
I need. Usefulness of an object, or at least having a personal use for it,
is an important factor for any project that I do. Unless I can make it funny,
in that case, it doesn't have to be useful!
