Overthinking Shelving

Shiny! Two days into 2009, and I've already finished a project, some shelves for my nerd hole. Okay, I started it in October, but still. The shelves are ½" birch plywood with maple facings. I stained them a "red mahogany" color, which didn't turn out either particularly reddish or particularly mahoganyish. So it goes. As you can see, I've already started piling nerd stuff on 'em.

This is all part of the nerd bench project for the corner of my office. I've actually finished building the carcasses for the bench, but they got put aside when my father took ill. Since then I've spent so much time trying to devise the world's best stop block system for my radial arm saw, that I've never gotten around to starting working on the face frame. Sigh...
