Cherry and Carpathian Elm Sideboard
Woodworker: J. Michael O’DonnellWhen O’Donnell learned that the cherry wood harvested from his father’s Pennsylvania property was being used for garden stakes, he drove a rental van from Chicago to Pennsylvania to rescue what he could. This sideboard (16 in. deep by 54 in. wide by 34 in. tall) is made from that cherry, with Carpathian elm burl veneer on the doors. The finish is gel varnish and polyurethane.
