Mahogany Musician's Sideboard

This hand-made sideboard got its name because all the woods are also used to make musical instruments. (Don't worry, they were not instrument quality timbers!) Honduran mahogany for the case, very-old-and-not-quite-sure-which rosewood veneer decorating the top, solid rosewood for pulls, hard maple for the drawer sides and Sitka spruce for the drawer bottoms.

This design appears in Lark Books "500 Cabinets" as well as on the pages of Fine Woodworking. The legs were a particular treat (and challenge) to make as the shape gently undulates over much of the length.

I pay particular attention to wood movement issues during design and wood selection, as this is key to a long and happy service. The construction is first class mortise and tenon and hand cut dovetails, and most surfaces were hand planed for a surface harking back to the best antique work.

Dimensions: Whatever size you want. This one is 54" wide, 16" deep, and 32" tall.
