Here's a fun project for the little reader in your life. This child's bookend pattern is provided by Reader's Digest. It certainly is a quick project and perfect for beginners. They take you step by step through the process of building this cute teddy bear bookend. I'd suggest taking the pattern grid and enlarging it to the appropriate size with a graphics program or a photocopier. That way you don't have to redraw anything. And since the teddy bears have a retro/folk art feel, try distressing the wood with sandpaper after you are done painting. It will certainly enhance the end product.
