This weekend I started work on a long-outstanding project to build a bookcase.
Not just any bookcase but an eight-foot long seven-foot-high recessed bookcase. The project would have gone a lot more smoothly if Lowes hadn’t refused to cut the 8′ x 4′ plywood sheets into 11½” boards. So I ended up making around 75′ of cuts with a circular saw. The saw-sled I made a year-or-so ago made it a little bit easier. But, it still took me several hours to do something Lowes could have done in around 15-20 minutes.
Having cut the sheets into boards, I spent Sunday morning cutting all the broads to length. I finished that just in time for us to take Getzger to the Blessing of the Animals.
Now all I have to do is just (just, Ha!) assemble it all, stain and seal it.
