I saw a picture in a magazine ad with a sideboard similar to this in the background. This is my version, using furniture grade pine. It’s very inexpensive, as compared to hardwood prices, but I really appreciate the way it works and finishes. You have to clean a good bit of pitch from tools and blades, but I think it’s worth it. The finish is Hydrocote water based Resisthane lacquer over a blond shellac base coat.

FG pine is perhaps one of my favorite woods to work with. Even the smell in the shop is inviting. The sideboard looks great!

I really like the break in the front too. Very nice design and very well done. A real heirloom piece.

Great combination of straight lines and curves.
