I like that a lot. Excellent work!

What brand are those blue clamps? They look like the Jorgensen CabinetMasters.

Very nicely done—looks great and you did an outstanding job on the finish.

thanks guys, those blue ones are actually “samona” I believe it to be a canadian brand, but I do have the orange jorgensen brand you are talking about as well.

I love the style of this bookcase. Looks great finished! What kind of wood?

Great looking bookcase! Like the design, execution and the joinery. I’m sure she loves it as well.

Great looking project. Very worthy of the “Daily Top 3”. I’m sure I’ll be using a few of the features you used on my next bookcase.
