This is the front of the block with the number 1.
Here is the number 2.
This is a side view of number 3 so you can see the depth.
And number 4.
This is the front of the block with the number 1.

I made these bookends from vintage molding.  To give the blocks more depth and weight I added a piece of MDF to the backs.  I then painted them black and hand painted a different number on each block.  These can also be hung on a wall (I added a hanger to the back) or set on a shelf for graphic interest.
