I made six of these for a Veterans Center here in Las Cruces/Mesilla. They needed some bookcases for books that Vets could check out. My Dad and I are St Louis Rams fans so I tried to make these look like Rams. Not real sure if they look anything like Rams or not but what the heck. They are 3 feet long and made from Radiata, stained with Red Oak and then Poly Wipe-On. The Center has a lot of wood furniture so I tried to match the color and style. I also did some remodel for them and built a table for their TV and accessories out of 2×4s and 4×4s.

Thanks for the comments. The cat’s name is Shelby, she was full of piss and vinegar and wouldn’t stay off.
