This was the last of my summer projects that I was able to finish. It started with an idea I had to make over desk shelves. Then it kind of snowballed into this gigantic thing. It came out to be 36” tall by 36” wide by 14” deep. It has lots of room overhead for all of my school books and more. The top shelve was not planned to be that small, but it worked out well for knick-knacks. The body of the shelves is made from a plywood called blonde wood. I was not impressed with it at all. All of the cuts I made with it experienced large amounts of chipping and tear out. I decided to paint the plywood because of this. The front of the shelves are trimmed in oak that are stained with Minwax’s Puritan Pine, then polyurethane and waxed. I’m really happy with how it turned out, and it does what I wanted so its a win-win.
As always, I appreciate all comments and criticisms
