Here’s the finally finished nightstand I’ve been making for my son. Took me long enough and missed his birthday by a month, but I’m pleased with the results. Family jobs always fall behind paying jobs. Here’s a link to the blog of the progress for some background. It’s all mortise and tenon and panel construction, dovetailed drawer, front and back.

solid walnut is just so beautiful…and shows so well in simple things…this is a how a nightstand can be perfect.

Very nice job. I’m going to have to do something in walnut one of these days. Always looks so nice. I’m sure your son will enjoy this for years to come. Thanks for the post.

yes, very nice work. for some reason this looks so much nicer than (what i imagine anyway!) it would look like in oak.

What’s not to like, and only a month behind? For me, that is about 8 months ahead of schedule :)

Thanks for the positive comments guys. I really enjoyed making this piece. I made it simple but heavy. I’m hoping it is a piece that will be around for my kids, grandkids, and greatgrandkids. Furniture used to last 200 hundred years, I’m hoping this one comes close.

This turned out very nice. Would you tell me where you got the plans? That is if you don’t mind. Thanks.

I got the plans from PlansNow.com/bedside table. Cost was $5.95 with electronic download of a PDF. The plans were pretty good, plenty good enough to build from.
