My wife brought this shelf home a few years ago. It had MDF for the shelves and one had a corner knocked off, I told her I would fix it up, but I put it in a corner where it sat until Friday. I finally pulled that sucker out, planed some mesquite, routed the edges and slapped some wipe on poly and this is what we got.

I bet the original never looked this good! A very nice upgrade / repair. Thanks for sharing.
