A Hallway Library (and some storage)

People were reading books and throwing them away, so I thought it would be better to let people share the books with others, so I built a table and shelf to put the books out for others. The table and shelves sit out the the hallway of my living area so that people can put out items they don’t need in hopes that others will put them to use.

The second two pictures show an outdoor cabinet I built to store scrap wood, screws, and any other piece of hardward I manage to scrounge up around here and recycle. To the right of the shed is some of the scrap wood I have collected.

I am sure everyone there appreciates what you have done for them. All this with a broken hand to boot!
