Without much ado, as I’m heading out to work:
I started building a poplar bookcase this past week, which will eventually harbor a branch line terminus layout. The design is a bit simpler than my original drawings, which afforded me nicer wood than pine. I worked in short shifts, as a few friends were visiting the area, but I got quite a bit done. The case is roughly 5′ wide and 4.5′ tall, and the shelves are 11.25″ deep, while the top has a depth of 14″.
