Here is a pair of bookshelf speakers I built as a wedding gift.

Uses some older buyout woofers from parts express I got a couple years ago (Peerless India W5-KA538A-SH, PE#299-362). The tweeter is the Dayton DC25T-8, it's the first time I have used that driver and I think it sounds quite nice in this design, pretty smooth sounding for a titanium dome. The enclosure is about 0.35cuft and tuned to approximately 53hz, it does gets surprisingly low considering it's size.

The cabinet is built from 3/4" edge glued Baltic birch boards which I found at my local Menards. I had used these before on a Bluetooth speaker I had built for my sister for a Christmas present which turned out really well so I decided to use them again. The finish is some boiled linseed oil which is just wiped on and which really makes the grain pop.

I really liked how these turned out and they sound great so I'll probably build another set to keep for myself.

Nice, clean looking build!
