The Drill - Tool or Toy?

I'm going with Toy. The kids and I made a bookshelf for the basement today with some plans we picked up from a nice couple, Jan and Gary Bloom, at the home school convention this weekend. They had the neatest booth at the convention. When you entered it you felt like you were entering a cozy library. They had several of these shelves full of wonderful vintage books.

Gary gave a talk (really, a demo) on putting one of these together. Both he and Jan have such a heart for not only books but children.

Anyway, it made for a fun afternoon with all three kids helping. It'll be nice to get our books out of the boxes and on the shelf. Some sanding and staining first, of course.

Thanks Jan and Gary!
