At the request of out Church School librarian, I am making two bookcases for the School library. I will make the two shorter ones and another member will make the two taller ones required. They are made tot he same general dimensions of existing bookcases. These are made from cabinet grade oak plywood. The face frames are made from oak and are half-lapped together to make the required lengths. It got several coats of gloss poly.

Now I have got to make the other one.

It looks nice, Jerrell. They are lucky to have such a wonderfully skilled woodworker in their congregation. :)
