This is an oak bookcase and storage cabinet as a wedding gift for my neighbor’s son.
It is three cases designed to bolt togeather for ease of moving.
The cabinet color is not that bad but the yellow background sure makes it look bad IMHO. It is Early American with a shot of Red Oak to add more red tint, then a coat of burnt umber glaze followed with three thin coats of satin poly. A light application of 0000 steel wool and waxed.
The doors have a cockbead applied to them. It helps to hide rough door edges and looks good—Hee Hee Hee!
-- God makes the wood beautiful--I simply rearrange it to make it more useful, hopefully.
