My sister in law grabbed this pine plywood bookcase that was being tossed out by a fellow teacher last month and she asked me if I could refinish it. Decided to go one better and laminate the sides and top with some 1/4 hardwood plywood. Opted for birch over oak for a slightly lower cost. Also added red oak edging. Came out very nice, I think.
