Ok now this project has a lot of meaning in it. When I was going through the table part of my projects, I thought about giving up and cutting the table up into firewood and then burning it. But my mom was always there with my dad saying take a break and come back to it when you calm down. Well as a way to thank them, I would like to say thanks and make them somthing special. This will be my moms mothers day present. So I thought that I would “dedicate” my next project to them both. So my next project is the barristers bookcase on my bucket list. I got all of the wood and decided to use ash instead of vertical grain douglas fir like the plan I am referencing off of tells you to do. I used it for two reasons:
1. Its cheap in michigan
2. I like the way it smells.
So when I picked up the wood I got roughly 30bdft of 4/4 ash and 30bdft of 8/4 ash. When the bill was totaled up by my wood guy he was like that will be $110 please. So I paid hime and got the wood planed. It came out really nice and I brought it home then started milling it which was a big no no but his place where he stores the lumber is the same climate in temp and humidity as my basement.
Here is the wood for the rest of the panels. (I have four of the panels glued up and sanded and the other two in the clamps.
Four of the six finished side panels.
This is most of the other wood.
Well until next time thanks for reading. Adam
