A simple bookcase with fixed shelves in dadoes. The top has a picture frame surrounding the 7 ply maple. The face frame was assembled with pock holes and glue. I flush trimmed the frame to the case. I like to oversize by a quarter inch before the final trim. The finish consists of 3 coats of satin poly- wipe on.
