Beginning a new project and have the concept drawn in SketchUp. SketchUp is great by the. I enjoy the design phase of a project and have done a lot of pencil drawings with T-Square and ruler. Once I decided to spend the time to learn SketchUp I was surprised how quickly I could produce meaningful 3-d drawings.
Anyways, a pair of bedside tables to match some of the design elements of our simple sleigh bed. Hence the shape of the legs.
A small drawer with a bottom shelf seemed like a good ides.
And often my wife has a TV tray next her side of the bed when she’s sick, or decided to do bills in bed, or does some hooking, ummm rug hooking that is. So I designed it with a pull out tray to increase the size of the table top.
I’ll follow up with construction pics as I move along with this project.
