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.
