Well, the day is over and the install is not complete, but I only have about three hours to go. I have to finish the top and the end stiles need to be cut to size and put in place. Then I need to put the molding on and I may need to cut the adjustable shelves down a little bit more. They are not fitting as well as I had hoped.

The good news is that the homeowner came by again today a couple of times and said she was really happy with the way things were looking. I still think deep down she wants solid wood (even on the back of the shelves), but she is at least liking the looks of what is going up.

I am going to spend the afternoon tomorrow with the family. We need to get some yard work done, and there are a couple of things that I need to get done/started in the shop. Maybe I can make some headway with that stuff. My wife has been very patient with this bookshelf project. I am really hoping that I can get everything done Monday night. That is the plan anyway.

More later.

you are probably right about the “wanting all solid wood” but she is saying that she loves the look .. and that’s excellent.

I remember her complaint about the plywood back but I don’t recall an issue with the shelves.

Just tell her you would be glad to put solid oak shelves in the units. then she can pay you again next year when the have sagged down 2 inches and they have to be replaced.

-- No piece is cut too short. It was meant for a smaller project.

Have your say...
