Do It Yourself

Anyone who knows Clint knows that he's not really "Mr. Handy." I think its rather cute! But this weekend Clint and a friend of ours David made bookshelves from scratch for Clint's office! We are turning half of our garage into an office for Clint so that its off of the house for noise etc. There is no office at the church, (since we used to live at the church, it was kind of dual purpose). So he will be working from home.

They took raw superwood (glorified chipboard) and stained it & varnished it. This took two days on its own cuase you had to wait for it to dry, and then sand it and varnish it again.

All the stained wood:
And TADA! 3 days of solid work, and here it is! Custom made bookshelving! We just have to put one last shelf in once they move the electric points. Next comes drywall, wood floors, windows, doors, and viola! An office.

Now its time to move his millions of books from our old house, and then we are officially done moving!
