A teacher at the school my son attends needed some bookcases this year. Since the teachers have to buy their own stuff, she was going to buy some made by Sauder that were smaller and made of veneer covered particle board. Instead, I made these for her from baltic birch plywood. To get the color she wanted, I used general finishes dark brown dye, topped with GF Georgian Cherry gel stain, then clear gloss lacquer. Staining BB plywood is a pain, but I think the gel evened out the tone enough to be acceptable.
Thanks for looking, and have a great day!
