About This File

This is a scanned document of the now defunct Workbench Magazine of this era. Permission was granted by the new Workbench Publication for The Patriot Woodworker community to copy and use the old Workbench Magazine at our pleasure, and for free distribution and re-use.



This wrangler with the uncooperative mustang is ideal for displaying your western books. Note that both man and horse have tabs on their feet that fit in the holes in the base.

Workbench Magazine September-October 1965


Here is a wonderful diagram for cutting out some classic book ends for your western literature collection. I love these, they remind me of a bygone era of a classic boys room, with these cool bookends on a shelf of the wall. This plan also has a great suggestion for using molten lead for added weight of the bookends.

Note the piano wire that is used for the lasso, it appears that as the cowboy draws the lasso tight, the bookends are also being drawn in to tighten upon the books!
