My son and I built this sideboard from an Ana White plan (http://www.ana-white.com/2012/02/free_plans/planked-wood-sideboard) for his house. Lots of pocket holes but we were going more for function than for heirloom. My daughter-in-law likes it, and that’s pretty much all that matters. He and I built the piece and his wife finished it.

Made from construction lumber and pocket screws. I used a UHMW chopping board cut into strips for the drawer runners.

My granddaughter Charlee wanted to help her Daddy with assembly in the third picture.

Sorry about the upside down picture. I rotated the picture a few times and it still posts upside down. I would appreciate any help in correcting that.

Any comments are appreciated.

Thanks, Monte. I would like it to be on the floor like it’s supposed to be in real life. I can assure you that it would take some serious hardware to hang that thing from the ceiling.

I thought it might fall from the ceiling so I set it on the floor for you. Nice work by the way sounds like everyone is happy.

Nice sideboard, Don. Hi, Charlee! She’s beautiful! The wedding band won’t fit on her arm now, will it? Thanks for sharing.

Looks great, Don.

On the picture issue, have you tried getting the picture to the correct orientation on your phone or computer and then resizing it? Even just going to 95% of original will usually reset the orientation tags and allow it to post correctly.

Thanks for all the nice comments! It was an enjoyable project made even better with my son helping out.

On the orientation, it is correctly oriented in my photo library. When it flipped on LJs, I intentionally “misoriented” it, hoping it would flip over correctly. No go. Thanks, Tony, for getting it back on the floor where it belongs, and thanks, Rob, for properly orienting my son and granddaughter!

JayT—I really haven’t had an issue with picture orientation before, but I’ll try that resizing trick if that happens again. Thanks for that tip.

Candy—My wedding band definitely does not fit her arm anymore. She just turned 3 this week, and she’s about 30 pounds or so. She seems to be just about where she should be in development and maturity for her age.

Rob—I did not make it out of that water oak tree. We did have the lumberjacks save about 8’ of the tree base, but that’s long since rotted out.
