« Part 1: I am at it agian! Part 2 of Dining Room Sideboard Project! series Part 3: Did more work on the sideboard! »

I got a change to work on the sideboard today so I glue up the face frames and added pocket hole screws to the face frame. I also glue the face frame to the legs and added a shelf on the bottom.

looking good !
i like your open air workshop .
just a word , don’t leave the project in the hot sun to long ,
as it can dry out the wood diferently from top to bottom .
i don’ know you yet , please don’t be offended by my comments .
just don’t want you to make some mistakes i did along the way .
enjoy , and keep us posted .

Looks good. Glue is almost never needed with pocket screws if you hold things together tightly with clamps while you drill the holes. You are really going to like using your router on this wood as it keeps the details sharp.

Tips of making a dinning rome. if room is quite dark , something bold like cream and fushia or cream & burnished orange , this would add warmth & work with dark / light wood,or if you have aSouth facing room, colbalt blue / deepest purple & cream would work well. Would keep the design in big floral print.
Add ornament of same colour, brings the room together.

If doing yourself, keep the old material and use as template, add at least extra couple inches all round before endeavouring to fix yourself, excess can be easily removed after insitu .

I just told my daughter how to do this and suggested using a tablecloth. She found the biggest one she could find and used it on all the chairs. Take off the seat and measure around. My daughter is now deciding if she want to have a matching tablecloth. The best news was it’s cheap and she can do it again and again if she wants.
