I built this for some friends who are having a remodel done in their house to get their washer and dryer out of the kitchen. The new area was a perfect size for a cool piece of furniture and because of how well my other projects turned out they asked if I would make something for them. My friend is a great cook and has some really nice cookware that needed housing so we used the "planked wood sideboard plans" as the bones for the project. I saw some cool things from Pinterest (Glideware) that I wanted to incorporate and we drew up some plans. All in all it took me about 36 hours to complete. Two weekends and some work at night after work. I used my miter saw, table saw, circular saw, power drills, wood clamps, Kreg pocket hole jig, and my electric sander to knock this one out.
