Here is a leaning bookshelf I put together and made from Red Oak lumber (4/4) and Red Oak plywood (3/4”). After it was all put together I used a Driftwood finish in hopes to somewhat match a store bought entertainment center we already have in a driftwood finish. The finish looks great though I must admit it’s a bit darker then I was hoping for (even with the Liming wax which did lighten it considerably).

Looks like the Family Handyman design. I built the same one but with a different finish. Great job on yours, I like the finish.
