    Simple bookshelf

    Just to prove I do more than buy old worn out tools and create mayhem here on the board. One of a pair of bookcases for a good friend.

    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Looks fantastic from here Steve!

    Feel good to be back (with your shoulder)?

    Feels great to be doing something useful, for a change.

    Nice job Steve. Looks exactly like what it is - a good, functional bookshelf that fits in the average person's house. Are (any of) the shelves adjustable?

    Looks very good--stable and functional too. Nice work! Overall sizes? Looks like something my son could use.

    Question about the back on that. Looks like you managed to get a nice piece of play with a bookmatch right up the middle? Or do my eye's deceive me...
