« Part 5: Ebony details Part 6 of Aurora Night Stand series no next part

My nightstand is finished, finally. This took way to long to complete; the plans were poor and really got me into a funk that was hard to shake. Fortunatly Darrell Peart came through with e-mail support and I was able to get it all together.

Material is African Mahogany and Ebony accents. Finish was from Darrell’s blog using water based dye. It’s darker than I expected, even making a test board in advance. Top coat is Arm-r-seal in gloss, six coats.

Once I got the handle on we decided to try the pull blocks in Ebony. I have them and they will get put on, but I had to move this out of the shop for my sanity. The handles are attached with threaded inserts so swaping the handle will be easy when its done.

This was a very daunting project, but now that it’s finished I’m sure my entryway needs a table in the same style…

thats sweet looking…My question is…did you use your nice planes back there during the construction?

This is the first day I viewed this blog.

I think it’s an outstanding piece of craftsmanship.

I fell in love with the Greene, & Greene style, when I built a table for the Lumberjock challenge01.
There were a lot of nice tables entered.
