Special bookend

A bookend that seems to grow through the books

For these unusual bookends, I utilised the power of magnets. There is one countersunk pot magnet in each branch that adheres through the book cover to a hidden metal bookend on the inside. Using this method, other branches or items can be repurposed as DIY bookends too.
In my application I screwed a countersunk pot magnet CSN-25 into a branch.
It looks like the branch is growing through the books, made possible by a stable iron bookend on the inside of the last book.

Note from the supermagnete team:
In this application, the countersunk pot magnet does not have direct contact with the counterpart (=bookend), which reduces its indicated adhesive force of 17 kg considerably. For details read our FAQ about pot magnets.
