I just completed this “Toddler Bookcase” for our one year old Son. The design is a product of my imagination and inspired by my love of curves. Woods used are quarter sawn white oak and fiddle back eucalyptus veneer. The finish is oil and varnish. More information on the construction process can be found in my blog. Thanks for looking.

I like it! Nice job using curves. Congrats on the little one. The oak and veneer (can’t spell it) go together well.

It is geting to where I can tell your work before I see your name. A very distinctive style. And I might add a very good style as well. Just plain excellent.

A great bookcase. Did you do the veneering or buy the plywood already veneered. It looks great with the white oak.
