Today we’re taking the cover photo for the June 2011 issue, stacking bookcases based on the reproductions at Monticello. Last night, these bookcases were loaded up with about half of my woodworking library. (Yup, half. That’s my kids’ inheritance.)
Today we spent the morning removing many of my woodworking books and replacing them with books on other topics, from rugby to birds to my large collection of elementary primers from the early 20th century.
It looks better now that it’s all dressed up for the camera, but I can’t wait to get my woodworking books back on the rack.
