11:55 pm - Ob Bookcase Update  
I've finished finishing. They're done. I varnished the last one tonight, and I'll probably install them Sunday. Now to find some decent maple for the face frame.

It was funny. FX was running the S6 Buffy finale this evening, and all through the fight in the magic shop I was concentration on the detail features of the Magic Box's bookcases as Willow and Buffy reduced them to splinters. Obsessed? Me? Nah! (They have a different face frame, although the front edging on the shelves will be similar. They're almost the same color, too...)

Also finished the Wimsey DVD set with Gaudy Night. The mystery is a weak and uninteresting, but at least there's the kiss at the end.
 
 
Current Mood: finished
Current Music: "Bus Stop" - The Hollies

You mean that after I've spent all this dough on them for stain and urethane and stuff, you want me to feed them canapes and drinks, too?

Oh well. I suppose I'll see if they want to have any of their bookcase friends over for cocktails. Sigh. They always gets so rowdy and out of control. That one that holds nothing but encyclopedias is always boring everyone to death, and I can already picture the tipsy one from up north having one to many, and having to lean against the wall for support. Not a pretty sight...
