So my father just had his 60th birthday, and I wanted to share the bookshelf that I built for him. He is kind of an eccentric, dynamic guy, and I knew that I couldn’t get by this year without making him something.
It’s not the prettiest thing, as it’s made out of reused pine, but I think it has a lot of character, which I knew he would appreciate. This was definitely a process that gave me a lot of time to reminisce, as I spent the majority of it with the planer and then the orbital sander. The trim across the front of the shelves is actually cleaned up boards from some storage shelves HE gave me years ago that I had been, until recently, utilizing in my garage.
My Dad is the greatest person I know, and I would not be the man that I am if it wasn’t for everything he has taught me. Happy Birthday, Dad!
Thanks for checking it out.
