Building Bookends: Sorted in 60
Bookends are amazing and useful little things – just a bit of well-calculated weight keeps my shelves from dissolving into piles of complete and utter chaos. (Thank you, Physics!).

Sometimes the easiest way to keep your “shelf” under control is to build a bookend, or some sort of cap to keep things under control.
