    Nice barrister (a few posts up)! And I was also going to comment on the cabin.

    I just recently got new bookcases. They are colored MDF - do I need to get shelf liners on them? I know wood has acidity issues, but I wouldn't think the same applies to MDF.

    I have a cheap bookcase that I use to hold paperbacks, and I want to add a couple of shelves to increase its capacity.

    Does anyone know of an online store that will make bookcase shelves to order, that aren’t too expensive? They can be particleboard or whatever-these are cheap bookshelves, not solid wood ones.

    The shipping might be prohibitive. What color and size do you need?

    34 1/4” x 10 3/4”. It’s a weird size because the bookcase was originally bought in a country employing the metric system.

    Edited to add: actually, the width is the only critical thing; an 11” deep shelf would still work.

    The ones I have are particleboard, with a cheap vinyl veneer that looks like mahogany – or is supposed to look like mahogany. So yeah, like a deep purple brown color.

    I may just head down to Home Depot and see what they have. If I can get a wood or MDF board of the right width - close to 11 inches – then I can cut it to size and then stain it with something close to the right color.

    But I was just wondering if anyone knew of something available online, just to save some time and hassle.

    I don’t really care too much what it looks like, to be honest, as long as it matches fairly close, and has the right dimensions.

    Pay the lumber store a couple bucks to cut it for you, then you only need to do the stain.

    Oh, I didn’t realize that! Thanks, Jon.

    And now I realize why you’re asking for so many details, Brian. I don’t know if something so simple would be worth your time, but if you have any suggestions, I’d like to hear them.

    I have some plywood shelves (lighter than particleboard and better anyway) that size. They are more red/brown than purple though.

    I'll weigh them later and figure shipping.

    My local Lowes doesn't charge for cutting lumber. Not sure if that's the case everywhere.

    Damn! It would cost $50 to ship two shelves.

    You are probably better off just going to Lowe's or HD.

    Thanks Brian. I appreciate you looking into it. I went to Home Depot on Sunday, and you’re right. A 6’ x 11” board and stain or paint should set me back about $30 and a couple of hours work. So I’ll go that route.
