Several years ago I found some free plans from Popular Mechanics, I think, for a shaker sideboard. I modified them and ended up with this. That was near the beginning of my woodworking journey and much has been learned since then. The aged/rustic finish hides many flaws!
The sideboard (buffet table, as we Hoosiers call them) has been very useful and, like everything else in the house, helps tell the story of progress made as a woodworker.

Very elegant table. Like the finish, can’t see the flaws.
