I have been working on this for a couple of days and it isn’t done. I was thinking about building the nightstands from below, but since this is my first furniture piece, I would start with something a little more simple.
Use your imagination to round all the edges/cloud-lifts. I just started laying it out in sketchup from scratch and tried to do things from memory from what I had seen instead of working directly off of a picture/plan. Not to say that it is all that original, but more to explain away some of the proportions, like the bread-board ends. I have done a couple of drafts mixed between going back and looking at the nightstands and pictures to compare and incorporate design features.

The entire project will be constructed of cherry. I am using a veneered mdf for the panels, and will line the inside with a red cedar ply so you will never know. I used different wood textures in sketchup to help provide some contrast, I am hoping for a much more uniform look.
I would appreciate any thoughts or feedback on some of the proportions/elements.
Here is a copy of the sketchup file
