Hi All
Just finished this last night and had a neighbor help me cart it upstairs
It may not be a traditional sideboard but it’s the best description I can think of
It’s 49” w x 12.25” deep and 41” high and made with 30% reclaimed materials
I took LJ Monte Pittman’s advise and re-purposed the doors from the antique hutch i refinished awhile ago

It’s a birch ply carcass with pine trim and pine drawers while the base and feet are reclaimed birch flooring and a length of poplar. Birch ply shelf with an oak trim on the face and oak for the sawtooth rails. White latex chalk paint with a buffed furniture wax finish.
thanks for looking!

Nice sideboard. I like the recycled catches and the zig zag shelf adjustable shelf system you used. Nothing compares to taking a pile of castoffs and making something out of it.

I really enjoy repurposing and seeing other jocks do it. Great job!
