Bookcases and Chest in their home

Here are the finished bookcases and the chest in their home at the top of our stairs.

It was snowing outside so the light coming in the window wasn't very good.
Thanks for looking, this was a fun project.

Hall Table

Well this is a project that I've been wanting to do for probably two years. I finally started it with getting the legs glued up and turned. Here are a few photos from the process.
It's easy to turn one, the hard part is duplicating the first. I have to say, these turned out better than I thought they would. Now I'm trying to figure out how I want to join them to the case. 

These are from my phone camera, not that good but they are better than nothing.

Sharp Chisel

A sharp chisel is a great thing until you stupidly jab it into your finger.

Wood River #7 Bench Plane

So here is what my new #7 plane did wright out of the box. All I did was wipe off the shipping grease and adjust the depth of cut, put a zig zag of wax on the bed and went to town. I'm so impressed so far with this tool.
I'll be using these planes on a new project so I hope to get a good feel for them.
I finished the bookcases and will have a few photos of that in a day or so.
