A simple build that can be made with off-the-shelf lumber. At over 8 feet long, with 3 drawers and a lower shelf, this buffet /sideboard has plenty of storage and display space. A functional piece in the kitchen, dining, or living room.
Follow the steps below to complete this project.
Create the table top and lower shelf. Join three, 2 x 6 boards together, using glue and 2-1/2" screw through pocket holes. Once the glue is fully dried, trim the edges square. The finished dimensions should be approximately 16-1/2" x 95-1/2".
Following the diagram, create 3/4" deep notches on both sides of table top and lower shelf. You can use a jigsaw or circular saw. There should be 28" lengths between the center notches.
Create four, 16-1/2" x 31-3/4" rectangular box legs. Join top and bottom plates to sides through pocket holes, using glue and 1-1/2" screws.
Align table top flush to the underside of the legs. Attach using glue and 2" screws through pocket holes and pre-drilled, vertical holes.
Align side boards between end legs and flush against the ends of table tops. Secure through pocket holes using glue and 1-1/4" screws.
Place back panel between end boards and flush to the underside of the table top. Secure using glue and 3/4" screws driven from the inside.
Align long, top and bottom frame pieces behind the front of the legs. Allow a 6-3/4" space between pieces and make sure the top frame piece is flush to the underside of the table. Secure using glue and 1-1/4" brads.
Add frame side pieces between top and bottom rails. Secure using glue and 1-1/4" brads from the backside.
Use the Kreg Drawer Slide Jig to attach drawer slide supports, flush to the side frames. Secure to the front and back legs using glue and 2" screws.
Attach lower shelf to the legs. Allow a 5-1/2" space from the bottom rail. Secure using glue and 2" screws.
Use your favorite technique to build three drawer boxes approximately 27" x 14". Before building, measure the exact width between slide supports and use that specific measurement as your drawer box width.
Install drawer boxes inside frames using 14" slides.
Attach drawer fronts to drawer boxes by using 1-1/4" screws driven from the inside.
Use the Kreg Cabinet Hardware Jig to attach drawer pulls or knobs to drawer fronts.

Dimension, dimensions, dimensions, how about a few more dimensions - I agree with Mark, where exactly does the 1 x 3 board get used, also a little more information about placement for the frame side pieces would be help… see full review
