This is a book shelf I built for my office. It took me about 2 months to build because of everything that kept coming up to keep me from working on it. I was so glad to finally finish. My son helped me move it to my office last night at 10 p.m. Sorry about the “side ways” pics. I rotated before down loading, but when loaded they reverted back to thier old selves. Umm, might be a lesson their. Anyway, the idea came from the September 2011 issue of WOOD magazine with a few changes due to not having the right router bit, needing a little bigger size, and etc. Thanks for looking.

Sorry about the neck Doc! I can’t really say on the time/hours, because I had to stop and start so many times, but I would guess it could be done in a couple of days not counting the wait time inbetween the staining and polyuerathane. Yes I did use dados. I was going to put a 1/4 back but decided against because of the money.
