 I just put together a shoe cubicle for 17 pairs of shoes! LOL, [;D]
I am also working on two wooden end caps for a knic knac shelf that I have carved flowers in. and did some scroll saw work on.. I need to finish the top board  and either paint and assemble the shelf or put a finish on it. I was thinking paint, but am unsure as of this moment..

What is it you have made???

Excellent, those look like a lot of fun

I would really like to have the space to create giant models, i.e. famous battles

No you mis-understand, it was already written on A4 pages, copied from somewhere in french, I put them in order attached the pages togther, the sowed them, then made a back and then put it all togther, printed the title on it in gold, and there you have a new book.

The point it was the first I did from start to finish, rather than doing just sowing or just making the covers. I actually made the whole thing all the way through!

The main work of a book binder is to repair books that are damaged, or make books from things others give you, the weekly newspaper is an example of one of the things the monks, turn into books.
They save up all 52 copies and at the end of the year make a book of it and you have ´Such and such paper- year 2006´ etc.

The monk said my cover was very beautiful, which I hope will help, as I think the book its self is very boring...lol Atleast that way there might be abit more interest in it.

OH, thanks for clarifying Jolly.. I bet it will draw more interest if the cover and binding are more attractive.. You must be doing a good job!

I think a cheese book would be a hit.. just tear out the page and eat it as you have read it. Nice way to mark ones spot, eliminates the need for  book mark!...LOL

I just built/made a cupboard underneath my bathroom sink. :)

That is cool. I need to build one for my bathroom sink also!.I actually have been looking for an antiique dresser with a large mirror attached to it, one which has a stained top or something. to drawers up top and a couple large underneath. I seen a dresser like that turned into the most lovely Bathroom vanity I have ever seen! had the pretty turned woodwork on the legs and they cut a whole for the sink.. in the top and shaped the inside of the two top drawers to go around the vanity so they were curved around the sink on the inside so they were still being utilized even though they were shaped oddly inside.. They put a nice poly urathane finish on the top so as to be water safe and durable.. It was really beautiful!

Did it take you long to build?

Michael You did a beautiful Job! Is that a knotty pine or another wood.. It is very nice!..

I put wains coating in my Bathroom two years ago and I really like the way it looks, I am do to redo the paint above at this point.. I keep having trouble with mildew on the ceiling. Bleach it and it comes back.. This time I bought paint with mildew stuff in it to detour mildew growth!.. I just need to paint it now!
