Step 1: Find Your Wood
Firstly, youll simply need to find yourself a piece of wood. Maybe grab a plank, or even a big enough stick, branch or even a small tree, to use to make the tool
Step 2: Bring Out the Basic Shale of the Tool
Using a saw, jig-saw or a band saw, cut out the main shape, the mesurments will vary, depending on your thumb size, but a size of (3Inches X 1Inch X 0.75Inches) (X, Y, Z,) should do the trick.
Little Tip; try not to over exagerate the curves on both of the sides
Step 3: The Fun Part; Carve!
Now, using carving knife or a regular knife, start carving the edges of the wooden piece.
You could ypuse a belt-Sander to bring out the shape easyer, if youd like.
Step 4: Digging Holes.
Using a drill, or a drill press, make the hole in the tool, to hold your thumb in when you read.
Step 5: Sanding Time
Finally, you only need to sand the tool just a little bit, so its conpmfortable when you read.
If you struggle sanding the inside of the hole, use a pencil or a pen, and wrap it with the sanding tool to make the job better...
Step 6: Trying It Out!
Now, you got yourself a tool to enjoy reading even more!
Go take a book and try it out!
