Okay the last cedar book shelf I made was not as nice as I wanted. Kind of looks like something my 11 year old made LOL. I know rustic furniture is not suppose to look perfect. Since then I have learned some new tricks and my shop has evolved with some cool tools, like my joiner, plainer and larger miter saw. I have to say the quality and the ease of assembly was such a difference, it gives such an appreciation of tools. To me it’s like a miner mining with a hand shovel and then he mines with a big diesel shovel LOL. Just imagine how much more work I can accomplish now. My next big dream tool is a small band saw saw mill and a pick up truck. The book shelf is 28” wide X 32” tall with a clear poly finish.
