We are downsizing and needed a space to store our printer, paper, and wifi router, so I built this cherry sideboard with a walnut top. We use the drawers for storing the stuff we stored in our old desk. The drawers have full extension ball bearing soft close slides since these drawers see a lot of use. The finish is satin wipe on poly.

This is a great looking sideboard! I like the overall design of it—and the walnut/cherry combo works well together!

Nice design, build, and wood selection 8^)

Are the door panels plywood or solid?

Very nice … the walnut compliments the cherry well. The black hardware was a good choice as well. Good job!
