Craftsman Sideboard

You won't need to find a lot of hardware to build the Craftsman sideboard. The nylon stem bumpers (28373) I used for the drawers came from Rockler. And I was able to order the Mission-style drawer pulls (01G62.40) from Lee Valley.

You can apply any finish you like to the sideboard. I chose to use the "Candlelight" gel stain made by General Finishes. You'll find distributor information below. The stain is also available at the Woodsmith Store. I followed the stain with the "hybrid" finish described in the article on page 46 of Woodsmith No. 163.

Additional finish information: Another stain option is Bartley's Country Maple/Honey in a 1:1 mix. Try leaving the stain on longer than normal - then lightly wipe off. The "hybrid" finish consists of General Finishes Seal-A-Cell Clear followed up with three coats of General Finishes Polyacrylic Blend Semi-Gloss.
