Rustic sideboard

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 01/01/2019 - 08:01

This project was a lot of fun to build. I always learn something along the way. The sideboard filled the one wall in our kitchen, taking the place of a bench and a drop zone for miscellaneous stuff. Now we can keep those things out of view with proper storage spaces. 

I routed a channel into the front and side pieces of the drawers so that I could slide the 1/4 plywood bottom in. I then screwed the bottom to the back piece which I ripped down to size. This way if I need to change out the drawer bottom I can just unscrew it from the back and replace it if needed.

i also chose to finish the back up a bit more in case we decided to ever move it off a wall in the future.

Thanks for the great plans Ana!
