    Toddler bookcase

    One of my most recent projects is this small bookcase I made for my 17 month old son. The design is very stable and would be just about impossible for a toddler to tip over on to him (or her) self. Woods used are quarter sawn white oak and fiddle back eucalyptus veneer.

    Another wonderful piece Dewayne! You're right; this piece looks to be very stable. Thanks for sharing.

    A beautiful piece. The combination of woods is very attractive. What finish did you use?

    Very interesting design and use of woods. I bet it was a challenge as well as a fun project. Great looking and thanks for posting.

    Wow Dewayne, that is simply gorgeous! You're pretty darn good at this woodworking stuff!
    What are the dimensions?

    Man, you're not gonna find a piece like that at Kids-R-Us, huh? That's gorgeous, Dewayne. Great wood combination, sweet design, and well-executed.

    Thanks for the comments and complements. The dimensions are 29" tall x 27" wide. Depth is 12" at the feet. For the finish I used a wipe on oil and varnish that is a combination of tung oil, boiled linseed oil and polyurethane.
