    WIP on a fancy bookcase.

    Being built for our 9 yr old granddaughter. Her mom sent this pic, & it took a while to get the dimensions to work. I drew a full size paper pattern of the side and the top piece. Sides and top piece are 1" ash. shelves are 3/4" . I have to turn 4 feet and make up the drawers yet. I did use the bottom off a practice bed post in pic 3 , but looking at Bun feet online for ideas.

    The design looks perfect for a kids room.

    Looks like a piece she will always treasure. Good pictures of the W.I.P.
    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.
