How to make a buffet server for your dining room & kitchen (1961)

Make a ‘Finger-tip’ buffet server

Display, serve, store, “roll away” with this serving center of fine wood

This built-in buffet will save you steps, help you serve both the dining and kitchen areas, set off your fine china and crystal . . . plus enrich your home through the friendly warmth of natural grained wood.

Serve directly from the “pass-through” buffet counter. An accordion-fold screen along the kitchen side closes off the opening when not in use, providing an attractive background for decorative displays.

Above the pass-through is a “double-entry” adjustable shelf wall cabinet that allows you to remove or store china and crystal ware from either dining room or kitchen. Below, folding doors swing away to bring your best linen to your fingertips . . . “wrinkle-free” roll-away storage on individual rollers. Fixed shelves provide additional storage on the kitchen side.

All this, plus a complete sliding drawer and hinged door hutch-type storage unit . . . beauty plus function in the Weyerhaeuser 4-Square lumber and plywood of your choice.

How to build this buffet server

Construction is simple. Do it yourself, or arrange to have it professionally built.

Suggested material: Weyerhaeuser 4-Square flat grain (or vertical grain) West Coast hemlock.

See your 4-Square lumber and plywood dealer for assistance in planning, financing and material selection. He carries a complete stock of quality Weyerhaeuser 4-Square lumber and plywood . . . the best-known name in wood.
