Sideboard Hutch Plans
PLATE XX. The piece of dining room or kitchen furniture the front view of which is given in this plan will probably be somewhat beyond the powers of the average amateur joiner; but there will be some expert woodworkers who will not hesitate to undertake the task of its construction. In designing this rustic hutch sideboard, we have purposely avoided all difficult work. Considering the importance and great utility of the article, all the time and labour expended in its fabrication would be amply repaid.
PLATE XXL. In these plans all matters connected with the construction of this French country style hutch sideboard are made perfectly plain. Fig. 1 is an end view of the sideboard in its complete form. If it is desired to save time and labour, plain panelling may be used, and the ends of the upper or dresser portion may be left straight and unpierced. Fig. 2 is a vertical section, showing the construction of one of the sideboard cupboards, and also showing the construction of one lateral division of the dresser portion. Fig. 3 is a horizontal section of the dresser, cut above the upper shelf, for the purpose of showing the front outline of the shelf to cover the projection of the centre cupboard, which is indicated by the dotted lines. Fig. 4 is an enlarged drawing of one of the legs, and Fig. 5 a similar drawing of the central support above the dresser cupboard, shown in Plate XX. Fig. 6 is a section through one of the cupboard doors, showing its construction and the shape of its panel.
Furniture of this class seems to call for oak wood in its construction, and always presents the best appearance when it is stained very dark and wax-finished. These facts need not, however, prevent any other wood being used if preferred.
