Shanty Sideboard

Submitted by cefogus on Sat, 02/27/2016 - 12:37

I changed up a few things. Instead of plywood I used 1X6 lumber and joined it with pocket holes to make the sides, top/bottom, and shelf. I made the shelf one piece and added the dividers for supports. For the doors I cut down 1x4s to 1/4 inch thickness and glued them together. Then cut down 1x3 to 1/2 inch for the trim. I just didn't like the plywood look. But I like the plank look. The doors were a bear. I should have used bigger hinges. They were a learning experience for next time.
