This is my best book case yet I think, shelf s are 36” wide and 10 1/2” deep. All eastern red cedar, for the shelf’s I took two pieces and laminated them together to get the depth I wanted. I used one 8’ piece of cedar slab and cut one side then cut it in half for the sides, this also left a nice natural edge for the front. Four coats of poly and it’s ready for the living room.

Another great job Todd.
Just have to love the natural edges and the colours.
Thanks for showing.

Beautiful job and great colors. But here’s the question: Don’t you kind of hate to obscure the view of the wood and your work with books, even when they are some of your favorites? I’ve been doing so with 5000 of mine, but every new added shelf brings the same old dilemma. Anyway, very nicely done.
