It has been a busy 2018. Not as much shoptime as I like but got some memorable projects completed so I guess that’s all you can ask for.

Materials used radiotta pine, glass panels plywood.
Made two display cases to house some books a friend of mine had made.
They were designed to showcase the books. They remind me of ship display cases but built very similar to fish tanks. I have a new nemesis and it’s name is silicone. I did not tape off the corners when adding the silicone to construct the glass portion and spent just as long scraping it off the glass as building the tops and bottoms.
Taping it off would have take under 5 minutes. It was a fun project and was well received.
