A friend dropped off some boards that were used to ship a load of wood shingles. I’m not sure what the wood was other that it was decent hardwood when I cleaned it up (and it was free for me). Used the lumber to build this bookcase for my son. The plan is from Woodsmith and was modified to fit the space in his room. Finish is an aniline dye, followed by gel stain and poly. It’s a great plan and the bookcase is great for kids as it’s unlikely to tip over.

Nice looking and well done. Looks like the new owner will put it to good use too :-)

Do you know which Woodsmith plan you used? Was it from the magazine?

That looks like a really nice design. I bet my grandkids would like that.

Good job, and thanks for the link,
