On Hand

Fortin Sideboard in Charcoal & Pure White




Modeled after our Austin Sideboard, with an added drawer. 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.

Adjustable Shelf

Adjustable shelves
Adjustable shelves are crucial for flexibility of use. This cabinet features our simple yet sturdy cleat-and-trammel system. Solid, wooden pegs are arranged in slotted rails. They don't break. They are easy to adjust – even with a loaded shelf – difficult to lose, and simple to replace.

Hand Hewn Top

Hand hewn topHand 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.
