Hi Pooja and zainali,

I made a new wall to wall bookshelf. The dimension is 6 feet tall, 8 feet wide and 11 inch deep. The bookcase has glass door (yet to attached). The carpenter used raw wood that has moisture. After he fixed it to wall, I tried to put my books on sheves, but the books became oggy and dump. How to prevent the dumpness on wooden shelves/planks so I can start to usethe bookshelf? is polyutharine finish seal the moisture of shelves?

@ Rashmi... Most finishes are water resistant. If it is a loose bookshelf...expose it to proper sunlight so that it can completely dry before applying any finish
