Glue and clamp two rosette blocks with their smooth backs together and with the wood grain going in the same direction. Check that at least one edge and one end are flush. After the glue dries, sand the remaining edges and ends flush. (Repeat this and the following steps if you’re making a second bookend.)
If you don’t have a clamp for these assemblies, wrap painter’s tape around the parts as tightly as possible.
Mark the center of a plinth block at the bottom edge of the profile face. Glue and clamp the pair of rosettes centered on the plinth block with the edges flush.
Glue and clamp the second plinth block to the assembly with the edges flush and the bottom of the second block flush with the bottom face of the assembly.
Sand as needed, wipe clean, and apply the finish of your choice (Rare Sienna shown). After the finish dries completely, cut a rubber pad to fit the bottom plinth block and stick it in place.
