Blue Monday - J is for Joplin

http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/

Sally, glad you're feeling better. Hope you all enjoy a little uplifting today.


This Saturday we participated in our Kansas City Woodworks Guild Open House. Our bookcases for Joplin Elementary Schools was displayed.  This is the first of 49 bookcases we are building for the schools.  Hallmark Cards of KC is one of the contributors and some other anonymous givers of wood and hardware for this fantastic project.

My husband along with others will be building the remaining 49 in the next few weeks.

The bookcase is on casters and hinged to open up like a book.



This is a VERY REWARDING project, would love to see the little faces when they first see their new bookcases.
