Sideboard Project build up

I made these 2 left and right matching sideboards for my sister. The left one is a flip down front door on the bottom, a left side door for platters or other awkwardly long peices and shelves inside the main cabinet. The right one has a drawer on the bottom, a matching right handed door for platters etc and the cabinet contains shelving and a sliding glassware tray. 3/4" pine plywood

Anthony, if i was doing it all over again....i'd have used oilbased paint.  But it's not for everybody.

Hi Geoff, I'm trying to build something with a contemporary look as well and this finish with the Latex paint doesn't look too bad. What else would you have used instead? I was initially planning to go with gel stain and tung oil but paint sounds soooo much easier.

Beautiful project!  Well done - thanks for posting!

Thanks Sarah, i'm pretty proud of them myself!  My sister wanted something clean and contemporary and didn't really have a plan so I just shot from the hip with the first and then replicated and reversed for the second.  The only thing i didn't like about sister chose the paint and went with Latex paint/primer in 1.  You're looking at a solid 5 coats and the finish is still less than satisfactory B-(

Hey Geoff, these are great looking!  The sideboards that I built were my first real big builds and I like the one I kept but, still find myself wanting to build a different style of sideboard...I like the style of yours:-)

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
