New shelf

Mike Johnston had a gorgeous book shelf made. Just to my taste, dark wood, simple design, quality construction.

Only problem with our local unfinished/to order furniture place, being in CA they don't want the costs of finishing, so we have to do it ourselves. Easy enough, but takes out the garage for 3-4 days at one coat per evening.

I don't remember a UK equivalent, but there must have been one.

Exactly the opposite of my taste. I like light wood, a complex design, and shoddy construction. Ikea it is!

Well, you're in luck, it's cheap and plentiful!

... and breaks if you stand on the bottom shelf to reach something higher up.

My kids think the pine one is a climbing frame.

Oh, and unfinished means stain as dark as you like (but no lighter than the original wood).

Heck, *oak* breaks if *I* stand on it.
