I built this bookshelf for my girlfriend, Julia over the course of two weekends. The kreg jig helped a ton. Staining, using the rubbed on polyurethane finish, and sanding down--plus all the drying time required--took the most time. This is a very sturdy and finished-looking bookshelf plan. Overall, the projectturned out nicely.
