I’ve been making a lot of projects lately out of cypress, primarily because of its relatively low cost compared to my favorite wood, white oak. I have been meaning to try my hand at the cowboy sideboard that was a featured New Yankee Workshop project not too long ago and a perfect project to make from cypress. It was modeled after a Molesworth sideboard that was shown in a resort in Wyoming. I really liked the design except I wanted it to look even more rustic than it did. The Molesworth only had exposed logs in the feet. I wanted the entire frame to be logs. After I started I decided not to do the entire frame with logs, but instead to do the legs running the entire vertical length of the piece.

Very cool design, love the log legs.

Can you share with me the name of your log supplier? Logs are hard to come by up in Ohio.

Very nice but why do people call it cowboy furniture when it clearly has all Native designs. I like your design and execution. Again very nice.

Missed the episode.
Fantastic piece of furniture/art.
Did you router the panels or carve them by hand?
How did you create the grooves in the legs to receive the panels??
Dave, I can see why they think your Super!

Inspiring. I like the basic layout as well as the choices and workmanship. Utterly unique. A work of art with those bas relief images.
