American Hepplewhite Sideboard
Litto built this reproduction American Hepplewhite sideboard using drawings from Construction of American Furniture Treasures by Lester Margon (Dover Publications, 1975). He drew the piece in AutoCAD before beginning the build and added embellishments on the sides to complement the elaborate front. All the inlay banding was shopmade.
