This bookcase I made for my daughter. It is cherry plywood with hardwood edging. The shelves are dadoed into the carcass and the plywood back is recessed into the same. This was my first attempt at ogee feet.

The finish is four coats of gloss poly topped with two coats of wax. I left the sides without wax for protection from little one’s hands.
