My Wife finally figured out what she wanted to store stuff in. A book shelf that would hold baskets, with a middle shelf to hold books,,, Baskets were bought at one of the local super stores on “Clearance”. Simple construction went together in hours, Took about 6 weeks to get back to it and stain/finish it. She is very happy with it,, now she wants 2 new dressers, 2 night stands, and a chest/bench for the end of the bed. MORE WORK : -)

Nice shelf unit. But you shouldn’t let her cover up your work with that tablecloth. :-)

Nice looking shelf unit. But I got to agree with Charlie. It’s to purdy to hide. jockmike

Nice unit, some advice though.

Don’t start those new projects with out getting some new tools out of the deal!

Nice oak cabinet!

I don’t know how many tools / machines you’ve got, but with that list of projects your wife has lined up for you, you’ve got more than enough reasons to go on a shopping spree! Yippee!!!!
