I’ve been working on this project for a while now. Everything is solid cherry and the top two shelves are one board. That was a gamble but the boards seemed to be pretty stable so we’ll see how it looks in a couple years.

This is my first project using cherry and i have to say, it smells awesome when cut!

I’ve still got a couple more coats of finish to put on it before i can call it done and can post pictures in the projects section.

Zac, I am looking forward to seeing pictures of the bookshelf. Cherry is my favorite wood with which to work.

well, I’ll be interested too. I’d like to make a bookshelf out of cherry as well.

Have your say...
