    bookcase complete

    Here is the little darlings bookcase. I've been working for her since my last days at school. They are coming in Friday for her class reunion and we're goin on a road trip to deliver all her stuff.

    I shot the white on it this morning in spite of the high humidity. I got some blushing on the first two finish coats but cleared it up with some clear precat topcoat mixed with the white lacquer. I think I put on five coats after the sanding sealer. I don't like the white lacquer myself. I guess I need to try some of the white latex enamel or something but I can't imagine it having as good a surface.
    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.

    The final product looks good!

    What did you use as a guide for drilling the peg holes for the adj. shelving?

    Looks great Jim! If you hadn't told us about the bondo, we would never have known. Thanks for the tip.

    Another fine job, Jim. I really like the ornamental details in this one.

    Geez Bony, that is nice, will look grand in her house for a very long time!

    I hope you put your John Hancock on it somewhere!

    I seriously think you should do this full time...........

    So after these special commission things are out the door, you going to be one busy guy with your RP door factory going full time I bet.

    Have a good road trip, taking the time waster?

    Cheers!

    I've got an order or two of rp doors but I really hope to do much more than just the rp doors. I would love to do lots of custom pieces like these I've been doing lately as well as kitchens, bath cabs etc. I've just been doing the rp door thing mostly to make ends meet and as the other custom stuff grows I may begin limiting my customers a bit for rp door work.

    No timewaster travel this time, just the cargo trailer.

    Nice turnkey... You need more kids and you will be able to forget that RP stuff.
