Here is a sketch of the nightstand I am working on. It features one 6” over two 8” drawers.

Side panel components have been sanded, and the solid panels pre-stained. Now a final test fitting before gluing them up. The lumber is QSRO.

A shallow groove in the legs will receive corbels.

Front lower rails have been shaped at the router table, and finish sanded.

Next up is the back panel and web frames.

Nice, Willie! Did you mill the side panels yourself, or did you purchase them like that?

I milled them up. My QSRO stock is all 1×6 S4S, so I just glued three pieces together.
Actually I glue two pieces together, then run that plank through the planer. Then I glue the third board on.
The panels finished at 1/2” thick.

Very nice. Look forward to trying to follow this project (hopefully life won’t happen and get in the way).

Man the rays on that Red Oak are wild! They stand out with nothing added to them, this is going to be a great project to watch!

I thought that looked like your work! I was just trying to put the name to the style when I saw it was yours – looks like it is going to be a nice looking stand!
