When we moved into our new house 2 years ago my wife wanted me to design and build a sideboard to go in our dining area.

Tonight I finally finished. It took several months as we have 2 small kids in school. Plus as I was painting the piece my wife decided that I needed to paint the dining area a rich blue to contrast with the white of the sideboard.


The carcass is something called Turboply and is pretty straight forward. All of the legs are cherry. I wanted to feel like they are imbedded into the sideboard so I designed all of the legs to slot into the carcass. All of the hardwood work was done with hand tools.


Here is my original sketchup design that met the boss's approval

That looks really good. I’ve never seen a countertop raised up on legs like that before - it looks very stylish indeed. The blue is a great colour choice, and complements the cabinets and floor very well.

Criticisms? Only one - you need to sharpen your photography skills. All your pictures are out of focus  [big grin]

Great job buddy.

That looks really nice. I like the design, very unique. It sure makes for a PITA if someone ever wanted to re-paint it or change the color/stain on the legs... but that's future someone's problem isn't it.  [unsure]

Of course this assumes that you did the parts separately and assembled "finished" parts. Otherwise, you have already experienced that  [blink]

Thanks everyone.
 I'm glad the design got mentioned, that was definitely one of my favorite stages of this project.
