I am really excited about this latest build project, a DIY buffet/sideboard with circle trim. I’ve always been a sucker for moulding and trim! The buffet will add much needed dining/kitchen supply storage, plus add serving space for Holiday entertaining!
The buffet cabinet offers plenty of storage space and you can add as many shelves as you want.
Holiday dessert spread, I do love some good pumpkin desserts (pumpkin roll and pumpkin pie bites Mmmm).
I’ve teamed up again with Buildsomething.com to bring you the free plans including the supply list, cut list and step by step instructions. Buildsomething is Kreg’s new DIY project plan site with hundreds of free plans. BuildSomething is a great community resource for woodworkers and DIY’ers, that may not have a site of their own, to share the plans they’ve created online. Shared plans don’t have to be computer generated, even hand sketches will work. (click on link or sketch to be directed to the plans)

A few notes about the build:
The widths of the leg pieces may seem strange on the cut list, but once assembled they will look like one piece.
When building the side panels, make sure they are mirror images of each other. The small leg is in the front and the pocket holes need to face inside the cabinet.
The circle trim on the buffet doors is really easy, but don’t tell anyone that…let them be impressed by your craftsmanship! Print the template (available at BuildSomething) and trace on a piece of 5 mm underlayment plywood. Use a band saw, jigsaw or scroll saw to cut out the circle trim. Glue and nail the circle trim onto the door panel and you’re done. If you have any gaps between the trim plywood and door panel use a little spackle or wood filler to smooth it out.
If you want a clean look inside of your cabinet, consider filling the pocket holes with wood filler or pocket hole plugs. To hang the doors, I chose to use 1/2″ overlay concealed hinges because they make adjusting the door gaps sooo easy and worth the extra cost.
Happy Building! Thanks for pinning.
