The CD Shelves: Done

Simple, compared with some of the projects I've seen from you folks, but I'm very pleased with how it came out. My wife is too, enough so that she has requested some kitchen shelf units.

It was a lot of work, to be sure; partly because my experience is limited. I stop to puzzle out the next step where a more seasoned person would have done something similar many times before. Having said that, I was pleasantly surprised that several operations seemed to go more easily than I had expected. I was pretty apprehensive about putting 12 shelves (and the top) in dadoes and getting it all squared up within the working time of the glue, but that went more smoothly than I dared to hope for.
As for getting everything "just right", I didn't. But I got enough right, and - following advice I read here - hid the flaws as best I could.

Nice job! I enjoyed looking at your photos. Don't forget to anchor it to the wall if you (ever) have kids around.

Definitely. It's not very deep. I attached it to the end of an existing wall unit:

Looks great, Greg. Now if you could just zoom in a little so we could make fun of your music collection. :-p

I'm sure there are a few things in there that I might not buy again. But I think our collection holds up pretty well. Going through the CDs to organize them yesterday reminded me of how much (good) stuff we have yet to convert to MP3.
We're all music fans in my house. I've been playing piano for 50 years (in bands for over 40). My wife and daughter are excellent vocalists and perform in community theater. That CD cabinet holds quite a variety of stuff.

It has just occurred to me that the same room could use at least one more piece of storage furniture that could be built in the same "style". And possibly a couple of others. Hell, given enough free time it might almost look like a "set".
Thanks for the kind words. In addition to having some new furniture - and despite moments when I said some unkind things to the wood, the tools and the universe in general - I think this hobby is having a salutary effect on my mental health.

Looks good ~and~ rugged! Did you go the BLO, shellac poly route for the finish?

I used BLO, gloss poly and mineral spirits. I'm pleased with the result visually. Time will tell if it's "tough" enough; this piece shouldn't be "handled" very much though.
As for the "ruggedness": it is quite stout indeed with 13 fixed horizontal members (all 3/4" ply) glued into dadoes, *and* a back screwed into all the shelves. It would hold many times the weight that will ever be in it. I could easily have gotten away with 1/2" ply for the shelves but I think I prefer the look of the thicker material.
In addition, I much prefer fixed shelves to movable ones. I have some (store-bought) movable-shelf units at home, but find I never move them after the initial assembly.
