Stylish, sleek and useful, this sliding-door sideboard is rewarding to build, useful for a variety of tasks, and looks beautiful. The sideboard can be placed in an entryway, used for serving in a dining room, or serve as an attractive consul beneath a flat-screen TV. Two dovetailed drawers provide room for accessories and feature attractive recessed pulls. Adjustable shelves behind the doors provide additional storage space. The base of the cabinet is constructed using Domino joinery. Atop the base is a simple, yet elegant case that incorporates two frame doors on either side of two drawers. The doors slide in a track. The drawers are set back, enabling the doors to slide in front of them. The sideboard case is constructed using mitered case joints that enable the grain to run continuously up one side, across the top, and down the other. This design creates strong visual appeal. The cabinet back is made of three panels that lend a simple and clean aesthetic, while accommodating wood movement. The sideboard’s dimensions are 48” wide, 36 ½” high and 16” deep. Students will be furnished a cut list and are expected to prep materials ahead of time to free up valuable shop time for joinery and assembly. Join Chris this summer to build an impressive piece of furniture that will quickly become a family heirloom.
