Did I mention that I hate finishing. My dad wonders why I hate finishing since it is the finishing process that actually brings out the beauty of the wood. Well, I can hate it because it is tedious, it’s messy, and it’s not building. But it does mean that I am getting closer to the end of a project that I really want to get done.
So I guess you can tell by now. The bookshelf commission is in the first finishing phase. This phase involves the sides, fixed shelves, and backs. The second phase will not be nearly as bad. It will only be the adjustable shelves, and the face frames. I might shift the backs from the first to the second phase just so I can get on with things for now. But, at least it is coming together. The stain isn’t looking bad either. So far I only have one shelf that looks a little out of place. But hey, there are going to be books on it right? I do not think it will ever really be noticed.
Well enough for this blog tonight. I have to start my blog on the bunk bed project. Man I cannot wait to get started on that one.
