Beaner, lets see mortise an tenon,shiplaped back,adjustable shelves,gel stain,then being lazy rather then spraying I just applied a wipe on poly. I didn’t have any 8/4 so I use two 3/4” boards and ripped a veener to cover the joint. It turned out ok. i agree with Steven I like the clean lines.I resawed the back boards they are only 1/4” thick.
