Bookcases Finished!

I put satin varnish on the bookcases this morning.  They are officially finished!

And what is more, they actually fit now!
There is really not going to be a lot of wiggle room in this place, but it will be a nice cozy place to look at the stars at night and read a book when the sun is out...
After I glue a few more things onto the telescope, I will be able to call it Steampunk and be done with it.

I am still trying to decide what direction I want the telescope to point.  I guess I should look at a star chart...
I think that it is going to be difficult to see what is inside without opening the door.  The curved window does not make for easy viewing!
I am all set up and ready to go on the Forest Fantasy Cottage... So is Kota.  He fussed around the table and made pitiful meows until I finally made him a door to the cave that is under the table... As soon as that happened, he was satisfied... And he left the room.

If I put the table skirt down, he will come back and start the mournful wailing once again.. So for the time being, I am going to leave the door ajar, so to speak..

Now I have to fill the bookcases. And I have to build a window seat... And I have to make curtains... and I have to glue on the dome... and...  The list is getting longer, instead of shorter.  Back to work.

See you tomorrow.

The observatory is really looking good Casey, and your telescope looks like it works too!
