Nice looking piece! Is it really that big or does it just seem that way because of the picture? (What kind of deminsions- overall and between shelves?).

I finished it by staining with Min Wax golden oak stain then after drying for 24 hours sprayed it with hi solid sanding sealer lacquer base, then steel wool (0000) grit to get rid of the nubs or any roughness last it was sprayed with gloss lacquer 3 coats. the sanding sealer and lacquer was Diamond Vogel Brand.
The joinery on the shelves are mortise and tenon , I guess you could call it that, I cut 1/4’’ stopped dados where every shelf went 5/16’’ deep. then cut 1/4’‘x1/4’’ tenons on the shelves. the top and bottom is fastened with 5/16’’ dowels. I think the picture made it look bigger than it is .Have a nice day Lee
