Came across this listing over on Etsy tonight:
“Hello [shopper name here]! Welcome to the Oberon Woodcraft Enrichment Center. We hope your shopping experience is enhanced by these lovely Portal inspired bookends. Now crafted in Poplar wood.
Looking for a place to put your collection of Star Wars books? While you could grab some of those trash compactor bookends, you might want to put a set of these Jabba’s Palace bookends on another shelf.
…but they’re not for sale either. Not yet anyway.
This wonderfully apt creation was made by redditor TriangleMen’s friend using “a CnC table and spare time/metal.” The picture below would have been more awesome if they placed the bookends and books on the opposite sides of a wall.
It’s taken over half a year since you could find ’em, but these illuminated Lightsaber Bookends are available for pre-order again. You might have noticed – if you have keen eyes – that this lightsaber is none other than Darth Vader’s.
The other cool thing about these bookends is that they are light up.
These most excellent bookends are the perfect addition to any Star Wars geek’s bookshelf.
Inspired by the famous garbage compactor scene from Episode IV: A New Hope, these limited-edition hand-painted bookends flip that classic movie moment inside-out.
