Really like the natural variation showing in the walnut out in the sunlight. Garnet shellac is perfect choice to let the colors show through. Putting such nice piece in a dark room would force me to add more lighting. :-)

Each shelf slides into a dado and is sandwiched between the face frame and the back of the bookcase.
