For years I have been obsessed with Barrister Bookcases, I have built several and have them in my office. I can’t seem to get it out of my system. I know there are alot of you out there that have some kind of obsession with something. I read, research, lookup and download everything I can possibly find on them. When I go into antique stores I am drawn to them and look them over to see if there is a way I can do it better. Even thinking of making them and selling them. There is a local antique dealer here that I have talked to about it but he wants to do it on consignment which means I get 50% of what he sells it for. Let me hear about your obsessions.

From a woodworking standpoint it has to be accurate. 90 degrees +/- 0. The exact length no tolerance.

Outside of woodworking it is fact checking the action novels I love to read. Next to the recliner is a laptop with a web browser open. Today I was watching the final episode of CSI and they mentioned the burundanga plant I turned to the laptop to see if it exists and if the TV program is correct.
