As you can see I’m new to this whole LumberJocks thing, so I figure I’d jump in feet first and throw out a recent project for you guys. Normally we stay busy with custom cabinetry and architectural restorations so I really enjoy when the furniture projects come into the shop.
The sideboard board featured in the photos is a built of solid Black Cherry for all exposed surfaces and tulip poplar for the drawers and interior case work. The overall size is approx. 5’ 6 in length and 30” in height. Both the sideboard and the corner cabinet in a few of photos feature reversed raised panels to create a solid wood flat panel. For the joinery junkies out there, only half blind dovetails would work in this design so time to crank up the old chisel and backsaw. The finish is our proven danish oil and then pre-cat urethane that works every time.
LumberJocks has been helpful over the years for techniques and especially product reviews. We’ll see if I can get motivated and review of few of the winners and losers in our shop.
