Comments: Weekend project: Gigantic Bookshelf

This makes me ridiculously happy. And knowing that it's home waiting for me sends me over the moon. (yep - I'm a dork.)

Let it be said that Matt did most of the work, and is seriously roxor.

Also, cookbooks don't have a place yet. [le sigh]

That bookshelfbeast is FANTASTIC! You may have inspired me to get my books organized and under control . . .

Ok that bookshelf is totally sweet. I am especially impressed that you added lights AND hooked them into the home automation. I am really looking forward to a post about all that in your home automation.

Just thought I would finally pop in and say HI again. I googled Autoworld for a guy at work and I end up here. Nice bookshelf! I could really use one of those for all my crap! Very inspiring.

Oh I'd recognize Billy anywhere! Should I be embarassed to admit I have about 7 of those things in various configurations around the house? Yes, I probably should... I have one in the dining room holding the Fiesta ware. Yes, it is a thing of beauty!
