One of the things that I crossed off my long-term list this weekend was to build a shelf. We have a little desk in out kitchen area where our laptop sits when it's not mobile, and at first it was pretty self-contained. Then I plugged in an external hard drive to start collecting and organizing our digital photos and music. Had all that music righ there in the kitchen (our most used room of the house, I'm sure) so I dug out some computer speakers that were kicking around to listen to some of it. Had to plug in a power cord to manage all that, and pretty soon there was a mess of cables and peripherals right near our kitchen table. Well, I buckled down on Monday (President's Day) and threw a shelf together. What do you think? Pretty good for a librarian?

Granted, it's far from pretty, but I'm kinda proud of it. Seemed like every time I had some weird part I couldn't figure out, I remembered some little carpentry trick that Mich had shown me and made it work. Thanks, Mich - you've taught me a lot.

Nice work. I keep expecting to see the high chair in that spot!

Yep, not bad for a librarian. :)
