So the case sides, 2 bottom shelves, the top and the side shelves are pine from a media cabinet my neighbor was getting ride of, it was painted black so I planed off all the paint.

I've never had much luck using the attachment function either. Photos always manage to get messed up somehow. Had one show up side down. :thumbdown:

Considering your use of reclaimed wood, I think you've done a fantastic job! :thumbsup:

Have you considered using a stain instead of paint? A nice Colonial Pine stain followed by a semi-gloss or satin finish would look good in any room.

Hey Jonnie, I've thought about stain but all the other cabinets in the kitchen are painted so we decided to paint it but we may stain part of it.

Great looking shelf! I have the same router and love it. If you are making dados for an uncommon board thickness, take a look at building an "exact width dado jig". Might make dados for reclaimed wood a lot easier!

Thanks C.A. I really like the router too. I watched a video on building an exact width jig when I got it but felt like it was too much work at the time but in hind sight I think it would have made the project easier. So I think I'll build one this winter.

Again not sure why my images keep getting rotated?
It's almost certainly the case that the sideways pictures are ones where you held the camera vertically. A lot of times I, too, hold the camera vertically (rotated 90 degrees from "normal") in order to allow a tall object or scene to completely fill the shot. In those cases, you'll need to rotate the image later on. I use MS Paint to rotate the image then save the new, rotated image over the old file.

Thanks Steve, what weird is that the images flips only when I post them. There oriented vertical in the folder I have them in on my desk top. Any ideas on this scenario?
