During our last visit to New York we tried to visit the Museum of Modern Art, but it was closed by the time we got there. Since the gift shop was open (of course), we took a walk around to see if there was anything interesting. My wife spotted a nice bookcase that she really liked, but I nearly slapped it out of her hands when I saw the pricetag.

Well here’s my version: solid oak with a custom finish (1/3 poly, 1/3 BLO, 1/3 spirits).

Cool Dog/Book Stand Brent. How well does that mixture take to a brush? I have 2 Gal. of Floor Poly that I’ve been avoiding but I just might try this out.

I like it. Might need to make a longer one…. Dachshund?

That dog has better taste in literature than most college professors :).

Nice build!

@John – not sure about the brush. I tend to use thinner finishes so I stick to foam and t-shirts for applications.

@Gene – despite the stand’s small size, it’s pretty heavy and solid and I’m sure a longer one would hold up just fine. The little one is a Min Pin mix and kind of a nerd if you ask me.

Very cool/interesting piece! But shouldn’t that first book be “Beowoof” ? <<ducks>>

Looks cool. Out of curiosity how much did they want for it in the gift shop?

It was $195 if I recall correctly. The wood was really nice, but I think my $6 in oak gets the same message across.
