Great looking case, I like the undercut top. The finish is inviting, and the whole case looks quite solid. Bravo!

Nice looking bookcase! The bookmatching stands out. Have been wondering: when you say “BLO/poly/thinner”, what is “poly” here? Do you buy a powder, or a poly concentrate or do you dilute store bought varnish with more BLO and solvent? It would be nice to be able to mix varnish with your own resin stock.

Thanks everyone!

@harum The “poly” is purchased as polyurethane and is most likely a uralkyd resin in a proprietary solvent(s).
