Oak bookcase, with lots of angles. Fairly straight forward, but the centre section proved harder than I thought.

Quite impressive. Whatever difficulties you may have had, you overcame them quite well.

Great job—really like the interest the center section creates.

Very nice Mark. That is a lot of Oak. Were able to utilize veneer ply on the shelves to help control costs?

Thank you, I used birch faced ply, two layers laminated together for all of the shelves. The client wanted to keep costs down as much as possible, and they will be 99% covered with books.

very nice details. Just to get an idea, if it’s not too indelicate, how much did you charge for that project ?.

Nice work, is the brich ply not more expensive than the mdf oak ? its about €60 a sheet here in Ireland just slightly more than the oak sheets, but the ply does make for a more stable shelf. Are they screwed on or resting on pins.

I wouldn’t use MDF for shelves, which is why I used the Birch. Just my opinion, but MDF should not be used for shelving, it has a tendency to sag.
