Hi All

Made this bookshelf for my little boy, this weekend.
I actually got the idea of the airplane bookshelf on LUMBERJOCKS. I cannot find the post now to see who posted it, but thanks for the idea.

Made with pressboard and plywood. I did cut some 2mm strips of pine to serve as edging. i actually hate working with pressboard. But it’s all I had. So I made a plan.
The pine edging strips I cut gives it a very clean cut finish.

The camouflage paint job was my wife’s idea, and she also did the paint job. Came out looking grate. A very cool looking shelf for a boys room.

Thanks for looking.
