My wife has been wanting me to make her a cook book holder for quite some time. So, with some down time in my shop, I threw this together for her. I looked on LJ for a some idea’s, this one stuck more than the others. So, I have to give credit where credit is due to Justin who made his back in 2010. As you can see, it is made of pine with several layers of lacquer. I made this on a 30 degree angle with a 12 inch back. The front is the only thing I’m not satisfied with. I would’ve liked to made it another inch taller to help hold the books. But, as it turns out, my wife is happy. So, no changes. Enjoy.
