One of my first real wood projects. while I did use oak ply it is true oak for the trim including the molding which I made with my router. I was very upset with the large mistake I made in the forth pic because I only had one sheet of ply so the grain runs different on one shelf which I meant to put higher but slipped.

Looks good. What finish did you use?

Looks great canoe911. I have been in the same predicament with grain, looks like a good shelf to fill up with books. Keep up the beautiful projects.

Thanks guys. I used a mahogany stain with a few clear coats over it for easy cleaning.

Classy looking work sir.

Fantastic bookcase and looks perfect to me, once it’s filled with books no one will notice the mistake.

Have your say...
