This project is finally 100% complete. Construction started in August of 2010. It is constructed entirely out of knotty alder with the exception of the desk which is predominantly furniture grade knotty alder plywood. I want give special thanks & gratitude to Todd A. Clippinger for his advice and help when I first was planning this project. I am very pleased with the outcome.

I was just doing some paperwork here in my office when your message came through so I had to stop by right away…


That was quite an undertaking and turned out great! There is a lot of work in a project like that – nice job!

I also have to say congrats for finishing the project. I know how some projects get started and end up never being finished because they are just so large and can seem overwhelming. Great job on the follow through;)

What a beautiful job! I am so jealous as I have about 2,200 books and several magazine collections I would love to have a home for. Thanks for the share.

That really came out great, it’s a consistently good build. Everything looks like it’s in it’s place, all square and regular. Congrats on a fine job.

Very nice. If everyone had the “stuff” it takes to make something like that happen, the world would be a much better place.
