Classic Sideboard

This traditional sideboard is a cross between a side table and a cupboard. Basically it’s a small storage case on legs.

At first glance the table may look similar to a sofa table or hall table, but the dimensions are unique to a traditional sideboard meant for serving food in the dining room. It’s taller, for one thing, and the case itself is deeper to allow large drawers on each end. The top and drawer fronts of the case are covered with beautiful curly maple veneer, but the core is stable modern plywood.
