Last year I built a desk for my wife made from quarter sawn white oak. Carol dropped hints of wanting a bookcase to match. Well, several months later after a major kitchen renovation and numerous other projects…it is done. well, almost… now I need to make a top section with 4 open shelves to match.
The door handles are made from some 3/8” and 3/4” oak dowel scraps I had laying around the barn. I wanted to make the handles instead of buying them.
For the finish I used a cherry gel stain with 5 coats of hand rubbed poly. I then waxed and buffed out the little dust boogers that seem to get everywhere!
I guess you could call this design “Arts and Craft/Redneck/Raised Beaded panel/my way…I did not use any type of plans… It just kind of evolved as it went along. I am not one to try duplicating other stuff.
note: I was just informed that it would be “nice” if I were to change out the baseboards and make the new ones (oak) to match the bookcase.
-- Every step of each project is considered my masterpiece because I want the finished product to reflect the quality of my work.
