Here is the bookshelf I built from the new yankee workshop book. It is made of oak that was leftover from another project. I stained it with an espresso stain then darkened it by using a rattle can of black held high off the parts to fog them. The finish is a two part duravar lacquer. I do have the fourth shelf somewhere outside the picture.

Thanks guys. Sometimes I nail the finish and then sometimes I miss it. I was pleased with the way this one came out.
