These alder nightstands are for a family gift exchange this christmas. I left them unfinished so whoever gets them can color match to their existing furniture. The legs are made from 8/4 alder with a four sided taper. The skirts are joined by pinned mortise and tennons. The drawers are also all alder with hand cut half blind dovetails. The underside of the tops were chamfered down with a handplaned to lighten up the appearance. I think i got the proportions right, maybe a little less height on the skirt next time. Fun little project, I’m sure they will be fought over in the exchange haha.
-- Measure once cut twice and if it's still too short cut it again.
