I built this in 1998 for my ex-wife. It was oak with pine carsiding sides. The shelves were glass which allowed the light I installed to filter down through her angel collection. Burned up in my house fire so this is the only picture I have of it.

Very tragic, at least you have one picture for your memories.

Glad you’re alright . Can you tell me what this is ? ” pine carsiding sides.”

Orson Wells left a pristine, completed, 1200 page manuscript on his desk and went to dinner. It was the only copy. Oh yeah. It burned. He said it was probably the best thing that ever happened to him. That says an awful lot about the man.

Dusty56- pine carsiding is a tongue and groove type porduct that people often will use for covering walls. Now paneling, it is three/quarter thick and it has a ‘v’ shape groove down the middle and edges. Works well for sides of projects. I used it to build the entirety of the project I called ‘A weekend well spent’, if you want to check it out there!
