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.

Love how you did that circle trim. It’s a real wow!
Thank you Sarah
This is a super pretty buffet sideboard and I love the circle detail in the front!

Beautiful, love the detailed plans!
Amy this might be a silly question but I went to print the template and obviously it’s max width is 8.5 since that is standard paper size. How did you print the template larger? Our doors are much larger than 8.5 inches and therefore, the template needs to be larger. Sorry my mom brain is not working and I know there is probably a simply solution that I’m not thinking of. I thought about sending the file to a place like Office Max where they can enlarge; however, I have no idea how much I should tell them to enlarge it. Or how this would even be done. Any ideas? Thanks in advance. 🙂
Were you able to print the circle trim template from the ‘extras’ section on Buildsomething? It should print 3 landscape pages that you’ll tape together to make the template. You shouldn’t have to enlarge it. Let me know if that doesn’t solve your problem.
Could you please tell me what kind of wood you used?
I used pine boards (the cheaper furring strips) and pine or sande plywood for the plywood. HTH

what type of router bit did you use?
