Leaning bookshelf, built with soft maple and popular. The shelfs are are different depths so they will rest aganist the wall. Finish is black lacuqer,water based, sprayed on with HVLP, probably around 6 coats. I built two of them. I will probaly build a larger version that will hold a TV, and another one with a desk type writing surface. The shelfs are for our home and the other projects are for my daughters.

Should be easy enough to fix the lean :)

Seriously though, it looks good. However, I would like to see the gap between the top shelf and top cross piece equidistant to the spaces between the other shelves.

Nice shelves. These are on my to do list… along with many other things.
