I’ll get right to it…the name for these nightstands isn’t very imaginative, the clients name was Paige, they are made of pine, there are a pair of them and well the front “legs” of the casework has an interesting profile. The profile was made to match an existing antique dresser she had (which appeared to have had the profile modified but that was then and I didn’t do it). If you can’t see it I’ll point it out …everyone I have shown says that it looks like a short semi chubby female from the neck down. I laughed…now I can’t see it any other way. Anyway construction is fairly simple dados hold the panels in the stiles/rails of the side, the 1/4” melamine back is also dadoed. Top stringers, drawer stretcher and bottom are pocket screwed as are the rails to the stiles. The client wanted the piece to have “texture” so knots were intentionally included in the tops. Drawers are Baltic birch mounted to 100# ball bearing full extension slides. The client is doing the milk paint finish to match the dresser.
