I HAD TO PUT the brackets back up on the east wall of the study in order to have some place out of reach of the cats in order to dry boards. However, I managed to get a coat of sanding sealer on all of the boards for the south wall bookshelves and on five sides of the shelves for the east wall bookshelves. The sixth side goes on tomorrow, and then we start sanding. I sand the sealer up to 600 grit, then do the final drilling and cutouts. After that, there’ll be anwhere from one to three coats of polyurethane on everything before final assembly. Won’t make it by Christmas, but maybe by the end of the year.
