Brian’s Cherry Sideboard
By Brian McKnight from Mastic, NY
Added on July 24, 2014
This project was my first attempt at a sideboard. I based it loosely on one built by Garrett Hack.
I kept it pretty simple using frame and panel construction. The joinery was also kept simple. I used the dowel max for all joint construction. This tool proved to be very accurate and easy to use. A hand plane was used to make the under bevel on the top.
Cherry was my choice of wood for this project. Inner parts were constructed of maple plywood. Soft close drawer slides, stainless steel knife hinges, drawer pulls, and knobs were incorporated into this build. This was my first project completed since Super Storm Sandy. Luckily I didn’t suffer the damage that some of my local Long Islanders did, but it did take the wind out of my sails. Its good to be back on track again. On to the next!!
