Corbel Bookends

Antique corbels make some good looking bookends, like these from BHG. But in AZ I haven't found a good place to find antique ANYTHING! But you can buy new ones made from composite materials at home improvement stores. But they aren't heavy enough to use as bookends. BHG has a solution. Carve a hole in the bottom of each one and fill it with fishing sinkers. Fill up the hole with wood filler and then paint!

That is going to be a lot less painful than searching forever to find a matching pair of antique corbels!

A great idea!

I've actually seen this idea scattered around the "blog-o-sphere" before, but haven't tried it yet.

Thanks again.
