35 ½” X 14” X 39 ½” (LXWXH)

Shelves ¾” thick

Walnut and Maple. All solid wood

Walnut finished with walnut Danish oil, amber and clear shellac and wax.

Maple shelves finished with clear Danish oil, shellac and wax.

I had made the client a coffee table a few years ago and recently a TV cabinet. All the pieces are going in the same room so need to match.

Very nice color combination. Also, excellent selection of wood for grain – it gives it a quiet, refined look. Nice.

Ken, nice and clean. I’d be interested in knowing how your shelf pin arraignment works. Thanks for posting.

Hands down one of the nicest book cases I’ve seen in a long time. Amazing. I will be stealing your design for my own book cases. ;o)

Outstanding, the contrasting woods really make this work nicely.
