I built this large red mahogany bookcase for someone I work with, it will be used for DVD storage. They happen to have a large movie collection and asked me to build this at 85" tall, 55" wide, and 10" deep.

I ripped 2x4s in half to build the frame then used pallet deck boards that I had squared off and cut down for the sides, shelves and for the trim to cover the frame.

I used part of two sheets of 1/2" oak plywood for the back. After building it and attaching all of the deck boards I sanded it and then stained it. After staining I applied one coat of semi-gloss polyurethane.

Next, I lightly sanded it again before applying the second and final coat of polyurethane.

After it was finished I attached the back pieces using 1 1/4" wood screws.
