    Here are the new built-in bookcases. Okay, they're not built yet, but I have the materials now, and it's moving into the shop tomorrow.

    Wow Cynthia when you jump into something you sure use both feet. A couple of months ago you didn't know what a hammer was for.

    I think they may be built under the tarps.

    Those are going to be some big book cases it looks like.

    You go girl. Bookcases are highly under rated by many. Looking forward to the build.

    Hey Bob, you flatter me. I still don't know what a hammer is, but I'm fixin' to find out next week, in a hurry.

    Thanks all for the kind words everyone--I'm so excited. Can't stop smiling. LOML said he's never known another woman get so excited about a crane truck dropping off a load of lumber and sheet goods.

    The finished product? 35 lineal feet of built-in 8' tall bookcases. I've got a few books.
