The plans for this sideboard came from Popular Woodworking. It’s made from quartersawn white oak and features a finish (complements of the missus) that makes the piece an instant classic in our dining room.

Very nice craftsmanship and the color is great. The dinning table and chairs are next. Thanks for the post.

Thanks, Shane and Tim. Actually, the table designed and, with Thanksgiving having just passed, the ruling is—next year we celebrate on the new table. I doubt I’ll get all of the chairs knocked out, too, but hopefully I can get at least a couple completed.

Excellent work. I absolutely love it! This has been on my to-do list for some time. In what issue of popwood did you find the plans?

What was the finish you used on this piece, it looks gourgous….

Thanks for the kind words, all. It is a piece I’m quite proud of.
For the finish, she used Jeff Jewitt’s Mission Oak Finish, as detailed in this .PDF. The only variation is that she used dark garnet shellac in steps two and four.
I’ll have to look up the Popular Woodworking issue number, but will post it here later.

You did an amazing job on this. Congratulations!
I’m about to attempt to make a Stickley Sideboard (#711) and I’m struggling to figure out how those top drawer divider walls are attached. Did you dado them into the underside of the top? Or is the top edge of them just left unanchored?
