Nice looking bookshelf. What stain did you use? Has a nice color to it..
I am just completing the woodwork on the lower section of a bookcase made from Quarter sawn white oak, one of my favorite woods to work with.

Very, very nice. I too noticed the color…..very appropriate for the piece and wood.
Nice job.

Lovely piece in a lovely home! Did you also build or refinish the house’s woodwork as well?

I hope your finish is drool-proof. Fits nicely with the rest of your decor. I might have to try that finishing recipe. Thanks!
