I built this bookshelf when my wife and I bought our house for somewhere to store movies and display pictures and different knick knacks. It was a quick build just to have some shelves, but has been a nice permanent piece of furniture in our living room for the last 2 1/2 years! It is built from pine boards with removable and adjustable shelves. It’s finished in a dark walnut stain.

Nice work! great job on the stain work, my pine stain comes out kind of blotchy.
