Woodworker: Pat Megowan

While building this sideboard during a 12-week intensive course at The Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Maine, Megowan grew so frustrated that he twice thought about busting out a chainsaw and making some kindling. "I went in way over my head," he says about the design and construction of the piece. Fortunately, instructors Tim Rousseau and Kevin Rodel guided him through the process. The sideboard is made of Honduras mahogany, with secondary woods of maple, rosewood, Sitka spruce, and poplar. It is finished with Danish oil, shellac, Waterlox Original, and wax.
