The bottom’s finished with 2-3 coats of oil varnish, the upper’s not finished yet, but will look the same…I got picky with the plywood, selecting the darkest birch ply I could find to look “cherryish” (cherry ply would have done the trick too, but I was trying to save!).
I actually purchased some beautiful 8/4 cherry, over 9” wide that I was going to resaw for these cases (there are actually four all together – matching set on the other side of a closet in the “office”), but I just wanted this project to be completed so took an easier way out. Solid birch edgings and base. Very very simple – we just needed the utility of these cases so badly! The big open case (“base case”) on the bottom was built deep for computer and file bags (work gear), the upper, simply a book case.
