My son will be 5 in a couple of weeks and has expressed an interest in
having a rocket ship shelf. He currently has a store bought shelf in
his room that's about 2ft wide and 6 ft tall. I've DAGS but haven't
found anything. A couple of years ago I made one of those boat shelfs
for my brother, and while that's close to what I'm looking for, I'm
afraid it will just look like a boat in the end.
Thanks for any pointers,
Now that gives me an idea. Make it so he can interact with it in someway.
Get in? Hmmm... Of course, this is how the 'project pit' gets started. A
simple bookshelf turns into an animated interactive adventure for the
children. Now I just have to figure out how to combine the computer into
this somehow and I'll be set.
The problem is that we have a boat in the driveway and he just *might* make
the connection. Also, he sees the boat/nautical theme at his uncle's house
where the other shelf is often enough to see the similarity. It's in the
back of my mind, anyway.

Nope. Ask the kid what "he" thinks a rocket should look like.
Maybe draw you a picture, or better, show you a picture. Go from there.
I would think plywood for the back, and shelves, maybe the sides.
Then a design on the outside, and bright colors. No prob.
If you're offered free wood, take it, period; figure out what to use it
