Zar and I worked on the bookcase that hides the workroom this morning. It is coming along nicely. I doubled some illustration board to make it the same thickness as the walls and then built a simple bookcase. I haven't glued the bookcase to the wall just yet. It is easier to work on the trim before I do that part. As you can see from the first photo, a plain bookcase would do.
It would do for most people. Balthazar wanted something more substantial. So we got out the handy dandy miter box and started cutting. First I did crown molding to go around the top. Zar put that on while I was cutting chair rail to go down the front edge on either side. Then I used a double bead molding for the front of each shelf.
When I finish it, the back will swing into the workroom with the rest of the bookcase. The finish will go on later today or tomorrow morning.
After we got this far, I decided that I should stop working and go to Wednesday Witches. Just as I was cleaning up to go Tessie showed up. Yes. She has found her way back into the house.
Zar turned out the lights and is hiding in the workroom.
