Very nice. I’d be proud to have made a sturdy bookshelf like this one.

A bookshelf? No. A work in wood that stands proudly, waiting to go to work doing what it was designed for and to do it faithfully for generations.

Who but a wood worker can see that? Who but one of us can take the pride that comes from making something that will last longer than they will?

Congrats on a beautiful accomplishment.
