About This Project

We wanted a buffet for our kitchen- but couldn't find just the right plan. So I modified the "Dresser with open bottom shelf" slightly to remove one shelf and enclose the bottom with Doors. We matched the colors from our dining room set (black bases with stained seats and table top). The glass was purchased from a local company and is called 'cord glass' to match some other custom cabinets in our home. I do have the sketchup plans- been trying to clean them up so I can get a plan posted... but can email them in their current state if anyone wants them.

From Plan (new): 
Estimated Cost: 
$400 (but can be done for less)
Estimated Time Investment: 
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Required Skill Level: 
Intermediate
Type of Wood: 
Pine and Oak
Finish Used: 
High quality latex with Floetrol additive for smooth finish. If I were to redo it I'd spray it on as it wasn't as smooth as I'd wished. I matched the top stain with our kitchen dining room set.

Wow

Wow, BBCAREY! Great job! I love the way this looks and it shows that you put a lot of hard work into it. I like your choice in pulls... very nice, but doesn't pull any focus away from the buffet.

Pulls - yes- a long decision

Thanks- I didn't say but this actually was my first BIG project from Ana-white. It did take me longer than I anticipated (two long weekends) the painting was probably the most time consuming as I was trying to get it 'spray on' like- but didn't quite achieve that look.

Re. the pulls; I think there was a total of 5 trips to Menards and HD with different options being considered- we finally went with these as due to the large drawer size all others seemed to be under-per-portioned. So thank you - glad to see it shows well.

Appreciate your comments!!

Be Proud Mr Carey!

This piece if a beauty. Your hard work does show very well.

I would like it, if you don't mind, if you could send me the plans. That would be awesome. I will email you if I need to to get something explained.

Just moved into a new home and this piece would go great in the dining room.

Thanks,

bbcarey, I love the way that this buffet looks. Is the top one solid piece of wood? I can't tell from the picture.

Top is 3/4" veneer with hardboard frame

The top is actually a 3/4" oak veneered plywood with 1x3 (sides) and 1x4 (ends) framing. I used a friend's biscuit joiner and glued the sides on with biscuits. I thought about using pocket holes but wasn't sure how to make the boards stay straight... and had used a biscuit joiner before - so opted for that. Let me know - I can send the google sketchup plans if you want them.

Plans posted to the sketchup 3d warehouse

Have a look back at the post below as I've posted the address to the buffet on the sketchup 3d warehouse- pasting here for your convenience as well.

Sketchup model posted on Sketchup 3d warehouse

I saw on another post that the sketchup model could be shared to the warehouse- which of course I knew but totally forgot. So- I've uploaded the model for this buffet to the warehouse and it should be able to be accessed from this link:
http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/details?mid=8acc2d1db12502a9cc047...

If I had the patience to work up an actual plan I would - but hopefully the sketchup model will help - there should be dimensions and I have the cut list in the model as well. Still let me know if you have questions and I would LOVE to see anyone else's finished project!

Thanks

Glad it helped- I need to learn how to post a plan- but for now sharing the sketchup plan I am hoping helps (I have some other plans out there as well). I do all my projects ahead of time in Sketchup to plan for materials etc..
