Project Information

Wife wanted some bookcases/bench for the basement for the kids play room. I told her I would build if she designed what she wanted; this is the result. Used 3/4 birch plywood with birch end banding on the ends; first time to work with both. Finish is 2 coats of amber shellac and finished with a hand wax. Wife is very happy and I'm pleased with my first "inside the house" piece. Learned a lot with this one, many mistakes, but had loads of fun making it!

Came out looking good. If the wife is happy then everything is good. The only thing I have to add is when I make furniture for kids I always round over the corners.
