Here are the bookcases:
I finished them all with Varathane's triple thick polyurethane in satin. It was the first time I had used it. I really like it and plan on using it more on future projects. The only downside was tracking down all the cans needed to get the project one. I guess if we had just ordered it online it would have been easier. I found that using a water based sanding sealer first then a coat of the triple thick was good. 2 coats of triple thick gave a really nice and smooth finish.
