This is a book shelf I just finished making. The first larger project I have done in a long time. It was fun to build using larger parts instead of the details I put in my boxes. Made from pine and done pretty well straight forward. I used my kreg jig for the shelves and to assemble the face frame. Face frame is attached with screws and hidden with dowels. Top is also secured with screws hidden with dowels. The back is bead board paneling recesses into the back. I got a sweet deal on the paneling, had a flaw in one corner so I got a 4X8 sheet for $10.00’s. It was on the locking section so it was cut off anyway. Stained with red oak on the shelf and the back, bead board, cherry. Three coat of gloss polyurethane. Thanks for looking.

Top looks like it has a sheet of glass on it, Jeff. Great finish on the whole thing. Thanks for sharing.
