Bedford Sideboard in Williams
Modeled after our Austin Sideboard, with an added drawer. With straight lines, and flat panel doors, beaded top and bottom only, the Bedford Sideboard has a clean silhouette. Designed to stand the test of time – fashionable, but resistant to the ravages of impulsive fad. Every inch is solid wood – yes the back as well. Built to last for generations to come. Joinery is mortise and tenon throughout. Door panels float in the door frames, to prevent warping. The cabinet top is 1 1/4” thick. At only 14” deep, the unusually slim profile is ideal for slight spaces. Exceedingly practical, each bay has an adjustable shelf. Finished here in our Williams stain.

Hand Hewn Top
Hand hewing produces a uniquely textured effect. We use a number of hand tools in the process – planes and scrapers mostly, and even some home-made implements. A hand worked surface will "take the finish" differently than a smooth sanded surface. Not so differently that they appear mismatched, just different enough to layer in some variety. The result is a warmly mottled, and very forgiving finish. A hewn surface arrives new with variation of colour and texture. The odd scratch or dent will blend right in, enhancing the character, rather than diminishing the perfection.
