I made two of these cherry bedside tables for our Master bedroom. I then completed 2 4 drawer dressers to match.

Beautiful bedside table. What topcoat finish you use? Did you apply wood stain, if I may know.

Great job!

Fantastic looking piece!

I’m curious about the design of the base, in particular the way it seems to sit on a pedastal that is smaller than the decorative bottom. Was this just a design choice, or is there some other reason?

The topcoat finish is a water based poly.
The stain was an analine dye with a gel stain.
The piece is made of cherry. I wish I could remember the dye color. I do remember that it turned the piece orange and the stain (I am pretty sure it is pennsylvania cherry) brought the color to the dark I was looking for. The dye made the cherry grain just pop. My wife allowed these to go into the bedroom

I followed the ‘plan’ that came from Plans Now, the base is actually pretty much the same size as the upper portion. The’decorative ’ portion is really a rame made slightly larger that the base and sits on the rectangular base.
