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.

Nice job.

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