Simple set of shelves I just finished. Unit is made from oak ply, finished with 3 coats of Danish oil; the upright is finished with Minwax ebony. I realized as I built this that I really hate applying veneer!

Dandy project Rob.
I’m withyou on the veneering.
Guys like Lee Jesberger are so good at it that they make me look silly.

I really like this Rob. Turning the right upright 90 degrees and finishing it differently really make the piece stand out.

I’m going to add this to my favorites.

How did you construct the joints on the left upright and attach the top?

Jason; I can’t take credit for the design, I saw it as a Popular Woodworking project. The shelves and top are attached used countersunk screws.

Great job! Your design or not, it stands out. Nice finish. Ditto on the veneering. Thanks for sharing.

Nice job. I also saw this in Popular Woodworking and decided to build one next spring. Yeah, veneering is not a favorite of mine either. Thanks for posting.
