For about ten years, my husband has been dreaming of this project. Last summer, he convinced my sister's husband to make the shelves. These shelves have been stacked in the guest bedroom since.
At Christmas Hubby taught my mom to text and in exchange for her proficiency, my dad said he would drive to Little Rock to help finish the bookshelf. Dad didn't want to teach Mom how to text but truth be told, he has been the driving force behind this project - he's amazing.
Once the two carpenters met here in Little Rock, they worked around the clock (my neighbors will testify!) Installing the upright supports took the longest amount of time - they had to drill into the concrete floor which was quite a task.
Hubby tore this picture from a woodworking magazine over a decade ago. Love the pose.
Isn't the trim work impressive?! Custom made dentil work and crown molding.
