This is a bookshelf I made as a Christmas present for a friend.

I got the plans for it from Woodsmith magazine, as I’d seen them build this project on their Woodsmith Shop program on PBS.

It’s made out of walnut, and QSWO. It’s finished with Danish oil, applied with 400 grit wet/dry sandpaper, rubbing in the oil. It makes a silky-smooth finish! Although, I since learned that, in order to bring out the ray fleck of the QSWO, you need to dye the wood first. Oh well….. (She seems to like her present anyway.)

Comments, as always, are appreciated!

Nice project. I like the combination of the QSWO and the walnut.
