Default Head Shaped Bookshelf

I am starting a new project and thought I'd try to post progress.

Customer wants a head shaped bookshelf, he could not find anyone else that even consider doing it for him.

I kind of hoped my bid would scare him but all he said was will half get you started.

This is the design he liked, it is about 3 1/2 feet wide, 5 1/2 feet tall and 11 1/2 inches deep. It will be made out of red oak.

I used my CNC Aspire software for design and to cut marking templates for the head shape.

Mike, I saw that and immediately thought of 'Being John Malkovich'...

That's a good thing; I loved the movie!

Was wondering if you were going to do it.

Can always call Scottart and have him make a visit with his chainsaw.

Look at it as a learning experience.

Good Luck

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.
