Once the dishes were washed and dried, the oak sideboard would also be the storage place between meals. The structure of the sideboard was generally five to six-feet in length by eighteen inches deep by thirty-eight to forty-one inches tall. The height was configured to the waist height of the hostess, for the top of the sideboard had to coincide with her ability to carry platters of food to and from the furniture piece. The sideboard had cabinets in the main trunk of the piece with at least one and generally two drawers. The top had to be completely flat without any interruption of its surface as it was the main staging area for serving.
What makes sideboards pleasing to the eye is how they are crafted from eye-catching materials. For example, you can purchase one that is built from pine that features elegant accents, carvings, and is then finished in a rich dark brown stain with antique style hardware used to cap off its appearance. Or, you can get another that is built from maple that has a very clean, sleek look to its finished in a bold black paint with a slight shimmer that is then paired with chrome finished hardware. They can be made from other materials and have different finishes as well, but for time's sake, we'll just mention the above ones.
