Well as I blogged about seems like forever ago, I had some old pine boards lying around, warped, sun bleached, well I decided that I needed to replace my tacky Ikea (swedish for cheap) componant rack, and the pine I had seemed like just about the right amount, so I set out witht he goal of building by the seat of my pants, after all it’s really jsut a bookcase ment to hold sterio equimpement, this is the results I came up with. I added a cove to the top and bottom, some basic screw on plastic legs, everything is glued, screwed, and then plugged with dowls, not my best work, but it is very functional. I finished it with one coat of minwax Mahogany stain.

-- Cheers

It works, Shawn. And, of course, doing is the best way to learn. Keep up the effort – well done.
