Here is one I did this weekend. 3/4" birch ply for the sides and fixed shelves, there are standards routed in the sides for the moveable shelves not shown in the picks. The front edges are finished in 3/4 poplar then rounded over with a router and a bit of crown added at the top. White latex semi-gloss after a coat of zinser is the finish.
