Carlyle Lynch adapted this huntboard, or sideboard, from one that spent time at the Museum of Arts in Richmond. It has four legs instead of the six usually found on sideboards, and it’s of a convenient size, he says. It can be made longer, deeper, or taller without destroying its appearance. He recommends keeping the cock bead on the edges of the doors and drawer fronts, and he says building the piece is straightforward – the carcase consists of two solid wood sides and a back mortised into the four tapered legs. Rails attached to the front legs provide openings for the doors and drawers. He gives step-by-step instructions, and the article includes a detailed project plan and dimensions of the piece.
