I finally finished this project. Whew!!! It was very challenging for my “skill” set. The sides tilt inwards at a 3 degree angle as do the front and back. The shelves are set in stopped dadoes except for the top and bottoms which are through tenons. The back is shiplap. It is a little darker than I wanted so the rays of the qswo don’t show at all in my poor pix. The finish is EM6000 with TransTint Dark Mission dye. I doubt that I will ever make another one, but now I can check it off my bucket list. :D SWMBO doesn’t have it filled/arranged to her satisfaction yet, so that part of the project is still a work in progress.

Thanks for looking.

Very elegant, and nicely scaled proportions.

This past weekend we toured an 1860 mansion … And there in the parlor stood a book /display stand that looked very similar to yours. I didn’t take any pictures (drat) as I was taken away by the parquet floors.
Great job on meeting the challenge on this not so square project.
