Its been a while since I have last posted anything on the site. I have been picking up some lumber for a few projects I have in mind and also had some projects for SWMBO. Here is one of the projects that I am finishing as more of a lesson learner for some of my next projects that will require more patience and skill. I like using pine and living in Houston there is an over abundance of it available. This comes from Wood Magazine’s October 2008 issue. I kept it simple so there are no curved aprons on this one. The top of the table is in another post.
Things in the “what would I do next time” column: First, measure twice cut once applies to mortises…if you have four legs, mark and measure them together so that all measurements are consistent. I did not have to re-cut pieces for this one but did have to do a lot of sanding of legs to get everything even on top. The mortis on one of the legs is crooked and I had a hell of a time getting it straight. The night stand is very stable and I was surprised at how level it is to the floor.
Please let me know what you think and, as always, helpful criticism is welcomed.
