Cutting the saw blade in half is the most challenging part of this project, but it can be done safely with a hacksaw or an angle grinder. Make sure you wear your safety gear and clamp the blade tightly while cutting! I painted the surfaces of the boards gloss black and left the plywood edges exposed with a few coats of spray lacquer.
I attached non-skid shelf liner to the bottom using spray adhesive to keep the bookends from sliding. Since I only have two books, my favorite feature of these bookends is the built-in dividers that can be used to organize magazines and tool instruction manuals.
Everyone could use a set of workshop sawblade bookends, so be creative and make a set! They look SHARP!
