« Part 59: Now for a Good Night's Sleep...I hope! Part 60 of Life as an Amateur Woodworker series Part 61: Bedside Table Build »

Having made the new bed, which to be honest, is taking a bit of getting used to (solid base with orthopaedic mattress, equals, sleeping on a brick!) , I now have to build the matching bedside tables / night stands.

I have had to go through the plan changing all the measurements to reduce the size, in order to get them into the room with the bed, that in itself will be a test of my calculations, I could end up with a big stack of firewood!

Yesterday I went off and bought the timber and plywood needed, the overall amount, reduced, because I have been able to use some of the left overs from the bed project.

This morning, I made sawdust!!

I cut out all the pine parts for both tables, the plywood, I will cut when I have confirmed the sizes later in the build.

I have just finished clearing up, ready for the family arriving for the Holiday week-end, so I’m not sure when I will get back in the workshop, if I have any say in the matter, it will be tomorrow!
