Design was copied from a David Marks episode on TV. He used cherry for the top but when I went down my lumber store (Southern Lumber in San Jose CA) I decided I did not want to afford it in my first comlicated project. I no longer shop there; too expensive. I cannot remember what wood I ended up using but it came out much better than I expected; it kind of shimmers. The shelves have a purpleheart strip on the front and back.
Base is ebonized maple.
Finish is a wipe on oil/varnish mix.
I used my Festool domino jointer and the Festool dominos to hang the sheves on; it worked quite well and avoided having metal shelf hangers.
