Mission style sideboard table in quarter sawn white oak. Poplar secondary wood. constructed with mortise and tenon joinery, hand built frame and panel sides and doors. drawers are a mix of through and half blind dovetails.
finished with Varathane Cognac stain, followed by brushed on blond shellac and then a liberal application of Minwax furniture wax buffed to a shine.

Edit- I used the cover article from Fine Woodworking #247 as inspiration for the design of this table.

Looks great Beorn!

What are the dimensions? I have a sideboard listed as my next major project by SWMBO. Of course the elements of Arts & Crafts and QSWO are indeed included.

A very nice looking piece.

Did you do the design, or build from plans? If so, please share who’s plans.

Very nice work & craftsmanship – tight joints and superb dovetails.
Where did you purchase the hardware?, and did you like the way the stain went on?

Oldtool, I purchased the drawer pulls from Lee Valley, 02W3422, 1-1/4 Oil-Rubbed Bronze square knob.
Varathane stains have become my favorite for staining furniture. I paint it on with a foam brush and wipe/buff the excess with a terry rag about two to three minutes later. I actually goofed on one leg, I brushed on the stain and while waiting I got distracted. By the time I realized my mistake the heavy coat of stain had nearly cured. I used some 00 steel wool and it cleaned up the leg just as if I had wiped it off when it was fresh.

I used the cover article from Fine Woodworking #247 May/June 2015 as the inspiration for this project. The dimensions, and internal construction has been modified to suit my needs.
