Bookcase finally done

Just need some help cleaning the stacks of books and loading it up.

Glued it up yesterday.

Didn’t have enough clamps. Used screws on middle shelves to hold while the glue dried and than took them out and patched them before sealing with shellac and then staining with watered down red barn paint. Used slowest drying Tight bond I could find.

Predrilled pilot holes.

Very happy that this shows the grain.


Thanks for tuning in. I’m very happy. Hopefully, my next furniture piece won’t take me a year.

Hi, this is not really about anything. Just me testing the intertubes with my own random meanderings and thoughts. Ostensibly, big word, I’m using this site as my personal log of sorts. I’m a random guy with 4 kids and a beautiful wife living in sunny Florida. Pardon the gratuitous posts with pictures of cute kids. I have an iPhone and can’t help myself. My day job is working in the area of informatics at the University of Florida where I like the shell. Oh, yeah and incase you can’t tell I like woodworking with handtools. Goes along with my command line philosophy 😉 Thanks for reading. Christopher P. Barnes
