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.

Tile-Top Craftsman Table
A simple design with no-nonsense mortise and tenon joinery makes this table an irresistible project.
Coffee With the Brethren
Coffee tables didn't exist as a furniture form until the 1920s (when they were known as cocktail tables). So while there is no true Shaker coffee table, this design works well with other Shaker-influenced furniture.
The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
