very nice :D

Im not a fan of pine though,but still very nice
if youre thinking cheapness then hemlock is a good knot free equivalent to pine ,its a little more cost wise but nothing really
Veneered board always looks nice

Whats the thickness to the mid shelf?i'd be using 18-22 mm,plates can really bend a shelf if its too thin :?
screwing through the backpanel into the rear of the shelf can also lend support

12mil pine .....shelves are screwed down into the brackest and from the side as well as being glued as well....(its still twisted a bit tho....grr )......i like knots as they give off that pine smell i like so much.thing is i have a tonne of oak in the shed but its too hard to use and its kinda heavy....i used the pine cos its cheap(not much cash and its easy to cut by hand) and it matched the other thigs ive made.. :D

yup the drawers hinge in the middle as well ....ran out of wood so the doors were made from what i could get me grubbies on in my wood shed.....the beading is to cover where the panels meet ...just makes them tidier to look at when they hinge down.hand planed the whole thing even tho i have all the power tools i needed to do it quickly.the oak i have is going to be a custom made coffee table/surfboard thingie ...just been waiting for the weather to improve so i can make it.have you seen the one i made earlier....pics below.
