This is part of a large dining room project that includes a 16-foot long dining table – 16 chairs and this 10 1/2-foot sideboard. When I get a chance I will post images of the chairs and the table

Very nice work. Can’t wait to see more pictures.

Got your book. Great stuff. Keep ‘em coming. BTW, the cloud lifts on the door rails are a nice touch. What finish or other process did you use to bring out the maho?

Thanks everyone!
Dave – We certainly don’t have room for this in our house – it wouldn’t even make it past the turn from the hallway to the dining room.
The room this is going in is 20’ x 40’ – and this is not the only dining room in the house!

I guess if you can’t afford a house like that the next best thing would be to build things for a house like that….Nice build looking forward to seeing the chairs also…...........................Schloemoe

Hey Darrell, it is a great piece! My wife has been wanting a sideboard for a while now and I love the look of yours. Hope you don’t mind if I grab some ideas from yours. Thanks for posting.

Steve – As long as you are not using my design for commercial purposes – I see it as a compliment that you would choose to use some of my ideas.

Daryl,

The doors are very interesting with no stiles. What did you mount the hinges to?

Great work!

I laid up the veneers for the doors on a pre-banded j-core. J-core is a high quality ply with 1/16” mdf on both faces – with the pre-banding there is a solid edging to attache the hinges to

Thanks Darrell for showing your work. You introduced me to the G&G style and through your book inspired me to build a few pieces. A G&G sideboard is on my short list to build. I only hope mine is half as nice as yours. I’d really like to take one of your classes but being all the way across the country does that in.
