« Part 12: Interlude and medium bookcases Part 13 of Jefferson Bookcases series no next part

Just a quick update – the first medium case got its second coat of finish yesterday, and I buffed it with a paper bag and put some books in it today.

It fits the standard hardcovers that I have a lot of, so I’ll be cranking these out for a while. I figure I need to make 16 or 18 of them total, but I’m going to have to figure out exactly where I’ll put them all.

But not today.

With my penchant for reading… this is a picture of my pine bookcase with my library,

with the spare no cost edging!

Very nice Dave, nice complement to the larger sections.

Thanks, Ducky. It’ll be going on for at least another month. Best avert your eyes, lest some words sneak in.

Thanks, Tom. It’s been a little challenging trying to figure out how many of each to make before I’m done unpacking the books, but I think I’m in the right ballpark. I’m still going back and forth on how I’ll be dealing with all the paperbacks. I waffle between building smaller cases like these, or building larger multi-shelf cases that I’ll hang from a cleat high on the wall. I think I’ll also need a ladder to reach the top shelves, no matter how I go.

Oh well. Not a decision I need to make today.

Keeps popping up in my email… You’re up to Part 13... Are there that many books in this world?

Is that an idle lava lamp sitting on the shelf?

There might even be a few more than that, Ducky. ;-)

Yes, that is a lava lamp. I promised Rob an action shot of it one of these days so he can perhaps remember his misspent youth.

Hmmm, that is worse than the dunny paper hoarding syndrome.

Looking excellent Dave!

Glad to see you are keeping up with your quantum physics, that Schroedinger fella was some kind of genius, but I bet he would be all thumbs when it comes to making fine book cases and needing all that classic physics to make them stand up…

Thanks, Splint. I always thought more of Feynman than Scrödiger. Feynman could teach. And play bongos. ;-)

Ok, I’ll fess up… I have occasionally scanned through some books written by Marvel... and DC... and Disney!
Hell, I’m a bookworm!

Nice book cases! When I saw the Quantum book, it reminded me of my text for the physical electronics course I took so many moons ago. Same color, anyway. I still have my uni texts kicking around (but only the math and physics ones). The wife wants me to get rid of them.
