Here's a bookshelf I designed/made this winter.






I love how the pattern (if one can call it that) in the wood comes out where I rounded off the edges.

Thanks for looking Cheesy

That is nicely done. The grain of the wood really comes out.

Art but also functional.

I really like how you've combined the book-ends as well- love the smooth finish, I'd buy it! Wink

that looks really nice. very professional.

and you're right; the woodgrain is very decorative. if you made a lot of them, it would be nice to stain them--nothing very deep or drastic, just a bit of shine and tint to bring out the grain and protect the wood.

(ps: i really want these!)

Yet another project that tells me that A) I need tools, and B) I need to learn how to use them!

I really wish I could do carpentry.

Beautiful.

Great job. That totally looks like something I "wood" do. And if you don't mind, I still might. Keep up the good work.
