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.

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?

Woodworm: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
Charlie M.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.
