After years of hounding I finally made the sideboard my wife had been asking for. Sort of arts & crafts style out of straight and quarter sawn white oak. I went with solid frame and panel construction on the sides because I’ve had poor results when using plywood panels

Looks great! Now your wife knows that years of hounding will eventually pay off!

The side panels look really nice – much better than smooth plywood.

Beautiful piece Tom.
The design and balance are just right and the overall feel is warm and inviting the touch.

Excellent work and craftsmanship!!! My wife has wanted a blanket chest for almost 15 years now. I think she finally gave up. Maybe I’ll surprise her in the next 15 years. This is gorgeous work, keep it up.

I like the solid-panels as well, looks like a large router….or was it done on table saw? How about the dentil moldings, did you buy or make them yourself?

Nice details, really solid hardware, looks great.

To answer the questions: concerning the finish, I used a 10% thinned polyurethane applied with a HVLP sprayer. On the dentils, I cut them myself with a jig on my tablesaw using a dado blade. Thanks for all the generous comments.
