I finished these Night Stands a while back, and decided to start a new Bedroom Suite based on them. The night stand is built with Black Walnut with secondary wood being soft maple. I used half blind dovetails for the drawers
made with my Leigh Super Jig. My Next Piece will be through dovetails with eyeball spacing, also done with the Leigh Super jig. I also used metal ballbearing drawer slides laying flat under the bottom drawer. The front corner joints are Locked Miter.

The Piece I am working on now and not quite done I will post soon. It was supposed to be my wife’s Christmas gift, oooppps.

Nice. Really tight job.
I like the cock beading around the drawer and door. Neat.

Hey Steve,
I’m not sure what of the term “cock beading”?
I shaped a bead on the face frame pieces, then used a haunch joint and pocket screws to assemble the frame.
Then use an inset drawer, and I really like the look you can create.
Have an awesome and blessed New Year, Todd

Thank you very much for taking the time to comment.
Have a blessed New Year, Todd
