John – I’d say you’re doing your father proud! That’s a nice piece of furniture.

It sure is nice, looks real warm. I worked with alder a little and I liked it. There is no way I would consider you an armature with wood.

This is a gorgeous bookcase. The beading and trimwork really make this an outstanding piece of furniture.

Nice job.
