This is a project that I’ve had in mind for a few years. My old bookcase was big, old and dark stained. So a new one was needed/wanted. All frame and panel and M&T construction. The panels are 1/2 cherry ply but I used the rotory cut on the back of the sheet as it is kind of different and interesting. Finish is one coat of Watco Natural Danish oil and 5 coats of wipe on. The legs are 1 3/4” sq and the top 1” thick so I elemented one shelf to give it a lighter look and it turned out alright. I like the proportions. The rail and stiles are milled with a shaker bit set which give it a slight bevel so I matched the top. There is a matching desk which about 95% finished so I’ll be all matchie. There may a matching file cabinet for a fall project.
Thanks for looking, Vince
