Mom's Antique Bookshelf

For christmas this year I decided to use my skills to give my mother another gift that will still fall short of repaying her for all she has done for me. I made her a new bookshelf, though not just a few pieces of plywod thrown together. This one needed to be special. Besides a nice finish and frame there are decorative feet for a classic 1900's look, with a framed facade, and hand made molding on the top and bottom. It was custom made to her books, especially those large cook books. She loved it and it will be in the house for years to come.

  • Beautiful work! Did you only use Danish oil for the finish?
