Tried though I might, I couldn’t get this picture to rotate…sorry. This is an adaptation of a project in “Wood” magazine that the wife saw and liked. I made some structural changes for strength. For the shelves, I used a tongue and groove bit to stub tenon together and continued the tongue full length to hold the 1/4 glass insert. Side panels are mortised and tenoned and the sides are doweled to the top and bottom. Finish is transtint dye, crystalac grain filler, shellac, and lacquer.

Nice, which version of windows are you using. XP or newer you should be able to open the picture viewer and there are buttons to rotate right or left. If you need some help PM me. It will be useful in the future to be able to rotate pictures.
