Nice bookcase! I see that you even turned the legs. Lots of work but worth it judging from the smile in the young lady. Granddaughters do that to you.

Very nicely done. I’m sure this was a very gratifying project as evidenced by the smile on the charming, little girl’s face!

Ah, it is Ash so you must have cut the scroll work with a BS. I managed to use my 16” scroll saw on Soft Maple, but when trying the same with White Ash my poor old scroll saw was not up for the job! Very nice!
