    bookcase

    This danged daughter of mine is beginning to get on my nerves. She's gonna have more of my handmade pieces than the wife if she keeps up this pace. They've just bought a house and I'm making a few things for them. Here are a few shots of the bookcase I built today. Tomorrow I've gott make the shelves and shoot the sealer, I've gotta be all done by Thursday evening. I'm headin out for Ft. Worth over the next weekend to deliver. The shelves are made from maple ply, solid maple, poplar, and I even through in a bit of good ole yellar pine for good measure. Of course it will be painted. Don't you just love bondo for fixin those errors like in the fluted molding on the right side.
    I once heard that cats and women will do darn well what they please and that men and dogs would do well to accept it and just go on.

    Nice work Jim .
    My daughter also has a new house and i have offered to build all kinds of things for her but she always says no.
    She says everything i build is too big so just start building big.

    Dang Jim. You do nice work!

    Who is so looking forward to getting back to complaining about building for the family instead of working on restoring machines, fixing tractors and all the other mechanical stuff I have been stuck doing the past month(s?).
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    That danged daughter is smart, and knows good work and (I'd assume) great prices when she sees them.

    I discovered Bondo for fixing weathered exterior house trim a few years ago, and I agree -- it's sure handy for painted stuff.

    Nice looking book case, Jim. I'll be looking forward to pics of the finished product.

    Looks good! Your daughter is pretty lucky!


    Did you nail the crown molding inplace or did you glue it up?

    How's retirement treating ya?

    Retirement I haven't been still a single day since my last day. I didn't really retire just changed occupations. At least I will have a mailbox to salute once a month
