After 20+ years of bricks and boards, the dream of built-in bookshelves is finally coming true.

It's not completely finished yet - it needs to have the trim all around the edges installed. Still, I think you can get the idea of what the finished project will look like. For a very amateur carpenter like me, this was very difficult, but I'm happy with the way it has turned out.

I love this thread. All cool stuff from amateurs to masters.
I haven't contributed yet but...some day.



HEY justthemaid, I resemble this remark!


A dorking we will go.
A dorking we will go.
Women just don't understand.
A dorking we will go.

We buy our junk brand new.
We fix it up with glue.
Then we crash into the ground.
Our favorite thing to do.

The servos are so cool.
They make the geek boys drool.
There are no women in this sport
We're all just goddamed fools.

Geeky planes are rad.
It makes our girlfriend mad.
We love to go and dork all day
It's really really sad.

A dorking we will go.
A dorking we will go.
We're all doomed to die alone.
A dorking we will go...

Had our buyer and bookkeeper scratching their heads over why I was ordering stuff from Aircraft Spruce.

Weege, looks like you might be there a few more weeks. :-)

I'm glad those days are behind me. But I did enjoy being the foreman on a
building at Prudhoe Bay that was a slab on tundra. The slab floated on the
tundra and had cooling tubes that ran under it to pull heat away to the
cooling towers. I was a big building, too. I should find the pics. It
was the only one of its kind up there. I wonder how it is dealing with
the warming. Those cooling lines might be adequate for pulling the heat
away that gets through the slab but I gotta believe the tundra is melting
further beneath the edges every year.

the first grade teacher needed a music stand;
i had this old branch laying around
that every single pony express rider
that ever was passed neath
while enroute to elsewheres,

plus warren passed under it
on his way to climb eeyore's enigma;
royal up to fantasia;
tm up to the line;

and all my other countless herows,

Looks like manzanita, man.

Nice work - looks a little like a normal chair looks after a good dose of L.

Although its not my particular favorite style, I am finishing up a curly cherry queen-size bed with matching nightstand. With my home and shop under contract, I have until October 4 to finish both projects and clean out 19 years worth of lumber, tools, and memories from this location.

I just might be able to meet the deadline, but all these damned afternoon climbing trips aren't helping with that...
