This afternoon I’ll drill the holes for the rods to fit into the shelves. Then the bracket can be mounted to the wall and the shelf slide onto the rod. 

Those brackets are really cool John, ya got a source on those?

Rockler makes something like that, but you could find them cheaper on the web probably...http://www.rockler.com/i-semble-heavy-duty-blind-shelf-supports?sid=V9146?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=&utm_content=pla&utm_campaign=PL&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI8dfJ-Y3E2QIVkLjACh2xewxcEAQYAiABEgKdFPD_BwE

Today is daughter's 39th birthday...seems odd because I only recently turned 39 myself:rolleyes: I planing on cake & ice cream for tonight...hope everyone else here has similar plans and someone gets the cake & ice cream. :P

A year ago Tuesday marks one year since Mom passed. A bitter sweet end of sorts to the month of February.

 

Rest of week TBD depending on the weather...A whole lot of sticks to pick up...re-start diagnostic journey on truck Voltmeter issue; even more clean-up, put-up and organize in the garage than sticks on 4 acres to pick-up I'm ashamed to admit.

 

@John Moody...how awesome it is that your son is following your lead; first by rescuing orphan tools, then putting them to use. Great job on the toy box...now you've got to get him signed on here. BTW, pretty nice job you did on the floating shelves too. What's your plan for finish?

@Ron Dudelston - what is your stain/finish schedule on the book case? That looks really nice.

I'll spray it with SealCoat and then a couple of coats of General Finish Endurovar.

@Ron Dudelston, how did you end up with an extra bookcase? 

Good question Gene.  A couple of months ago I built a pair of 4' X 4' bookcases for a local decorator. I used cabinet grade 3/4" plywood and trimmed it our with native cherry.  When I was picking up the plywood, there was a shop grade piece that I bought at a killer price because it had a bad edge. Knowing my ability to mess something up, I bought the extra piece as insurance and I didn't have to use it.  Therefore, I had a sheet of plywood in my way (You've seen my shop).  Viola', a 32" bookcase was born.  I did change the build just a bit.  I put a solid cherry top on it.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
