We recently bought an entertainment center and two bookcases from an unfinished furniture place. We got solid oak and paid about half the price that the veneers were going for in the local discount furniture place. We did the finishing work ourselves - but that is something that we like to do - quality time with the dh after ds goes to bed. Not only was it a lot cheaper, but we were able to use the same stain as on some other furniture that we had made and it definitely left us with a sense of pride. It looks so professional :) We now have a library in our loft - we feel so upperclass :)
