This was a fast little project and it’s not perfect as a result. I was just looking for a way to hold some of my woodworking books in my shop and I searching LJs for a book rack. I found one, originally from Woodsmith Magazine, that was also built by vipond33 and G_Bishop . I grabbed some QSWO from the scrap bin and built the project. The finish is Minwax Early American #230 stain then three coats of Zinsser Bulls Eye Clear Shellac, padded on lightly sanded with 320 and 400 before the final light coat.
