Shaker Sideboard

The essence of Shaker sideboard design is simplicity. Although I didn’t use traditional construction techniques in this project, I did keep it simple. Behind this sideboard’s elegant front and sides is a very easy-to-build birch-plywood box joined with biscuits. It’s strong and durable. The front and sides are assemblies that are added onto the box. The result is a beautiful, traditional-looking piece that doesn’t require complicated joinery.
