Mission-Style Sideboard: I got the plans for this project online from Popular Mechanics. All components are red oak or oak ply, except the cabinet back and drawer bottoms which are baltic birch. This was my first project in oak. Each leg is formed from four pieces mitered around a square center piece. Actually, the center piece itself is composed of two pieces - the cut-offs from the mitered sides. For the drawers I rabbetted the front and back pieces to fit into dados cut into the sides, then screwed on the separate drawer fronts. Plans called for frames between drawers; I used paneled (closed) frames, and I put ball-bearing sliders on each drawer. I used no-mortise hinges on the panel doors. Aside from assembling the drawer sides, which were glued together, all joinery is with 1-1/4" pocket screws (without glue). All parts were stained prior to assembly using Wood Kote's Jel'd Stain "Heritage Oak"; finish was was the same company's clear satin. Drawer and door hardware and the no-mortise hinges are from Lee Valley. I'm grateful for help throughout this project from my neighbor Mike McMullen. I bought the wood on March 22 and brought the finished product into my dining room on June 28. Two days later I added a 3/16" sheet of bronze glass to the top. A very satisfying project.
