Took the basic plans from Woodsmith magazine (and by the way, you can get them free on-line from their on-line sample issue) and modifed them slightly for size, material at hand and tools at hand.
Learned a lot and got some really good practice at basic joinery, grain matching, sheet-good finishing and edge banding. Plans called for cherry and cherry plywood but locally all I could get was red oak and oak plywood. Good practice at finishing and getting the solid wood to match (reasonably) the plywood.
Junior high shop was a long time ago and I’m slowly (very slowly) working my way toward some kitchen and bathroom remodeling. Also including in the mix is building a darkroom. The real kind, where you can splash around in developer and look at everything under red light!
And by the way, the bookcase is straight and square, it is the camera lens and crappy JPG compression that is causing the seemingly curved lines!
