I’ve been promising my wife since we’ve been married that we didn’t have to buy furniture for our bedroom because I’d make it. (I’m probably not the only woodworker to ever make such a promise.) Well, after 12 years, I’ve got the first two pieces done. (Not that it took that long!) I started these nightstands about the beginning of summer and generally only got to spend a few hours each week on them.
All hand-cut dovetails throughout (case and drawers). Can’t see them in the pics, but lamb’s tongue carved in front corners.
Wood: cherry (ash for drawers, mostly because I really like ash and I have an abundance of it)
Finish: sanded out to 220, set in sun for 6 hours, 6 coats hand rubbed Waterlox medium sheen, sanded out with 400 grit between coats
Hardware: solid brass from Horton
Glides: Blum Tandem
