Finished Library shelves

This is where the dream of a library started.

And after a lot of milling, planing and sanding, lacquering, and the final assembly, we finally had our dream come true: our little library.

One of the more interesting parts or this project was the actual assembly, which I described in a previous post. And to button it all up, I should post a time lapse of this process.

I can’t tell you how good it felt to finally have all those books out of the boxes! No more running down into the basement and rummaging through boxes for that one reference book or article that was needed.

And thanks again to our friend Steve, who lent a helping hand when I needed them most!
