« Part 1: Introduction Part 2 of Allyson's Nightstand series Part 3: Finally finished »

Many of the nightstand components are complete now and I am getting ready to start gluing. I plan to glue up several intermediate components and then glue the components together. The first component includes the two front legs and the upper and lower drawer rails. These pieces are all sanded now and I plan to glue them up shortly. The next piece will include the two back legs and the back apron. Finally, I will connect the front and back with the side aprons, center drawer rails and the bottom shelf rails. Next, I plan to glue up the top and attach it. After that I will work on the drawers. Well, that is my plan. I would really like to hear what you think.

Here are some pictures showing the pieces fit together.

Thanks for your interest.

I haven’t updated this in a while. I have now finished the drawers and top
and am starting to do finishing. I should probably do another post at least by the
time it is done.

I like the arch on the apron below the drawers, adds a nice design contrast to the rest of the stand.
