That is a nice bookcase, Jim. It has a straight-forward design that is well proportioned. And walnut is such a beautiful wood with which to work.

Nice job.

Nice bookshelf Jim, I need to build one or two of those myself for the wife’s books. Is this your own design?

Hey Gpas
yes it was my design. If you have 8ft ceilings in your shop it will be a problem. The customer thought he could haul it home in his van, WRONG. He rented a trailer.

Jim that bookcase makes you look like you’re about 5’10”. All kidding aside, it really turned out nice. I bet it was a beast to pick up and move.

Jim, Looks great.. Was getting your dentist to pay what it must be worth like pulling teeth or did you give him a shot of Novacain in his wallet first?
