My husband is amazing

For lots and lots and lots of reasons. Here is one.

He decided a while ago he wanted to take up woodworking. We had both decided long ago we hated the Target bookshelf we have. His first project? A bookshelf, made from real wood, not the cardboard-and-formica of our current one. And such a nice color! And real wood! and made by my husband!

Did I mention he's amazing? More on that later.

Awesome job Josh!! You can come the house anytime and get started on ours for the study :-)

Very, very cool. It looks like a really nice, well-crafted piece of furniture...real furniture.

Can I ask about the materials? Wood species and whatnot?

EHT said...

Yes, he is very amazing. I love the shelf space.

Brett-

Joanna asked me to answer cause she wasn't sure. The sides are 2x10 pine and the shelves are 1x10. I didn't use the nice project wood because of our budget, so they're just the cleanest boards I could find in the lumber yard.

He did a really good job. I think it's cool when you can look at a piece that is made just for you.

It turns out that I need bedroom furniture. Piles of clothes don't really work for me anymore. And those shelves are FANTASTIC.
