I’d say that’s quite a nice sideboard—class mission style. I want to build one very similar to this. Did you follow plans or design it yourself? You said it’s your first attempt, do you have plans on making more?

Very nice side board. The quarter sawn oak looks great and the through tenons on the front are a nice detail.

I recognized it as from American Woodworker right away. I used the same plan as somewhat of a guide when I designed and built mine. Love A&C, Mission, G&G. You did an excellent job. Are your drawers dovetailed? I haven’t built my drawers yet, but will shortly.
