I made two of these nightstands out of reclaimed white oak from the 1930’s. They were originally pews in a church nearby that was doing some remodeling and wanted to get rid of a few rows of pews to make a little more room for folks to spread out and not be so cramped (the 3rd picture is one of the church pews before I got a few). I have made a number of projects from this wood. I truly enjoy reusing wood that originally had another life.
Unfortunately, my sister-in-law who I made these for, wanted them to be painted black! I refused…but, I told her I would consider staining them black—the things you do for family, huh! The final product had an intermediary shelf ten inches from the bottom as well. I would include pictures of the stained tables, but I can’t bring myself to show them to anyone, much less the entire internet! Forgive me, oak trees, for she knows not what she did!
Also, my daughters couldn’t help but photo-bomb my attempt at photography. At least they were natural at this point. Why did I bother to even align the grain of the wood! I was going to make them out of 2×4’s but I couldn’t bring myself to use that when I had plenty of oak available. Thanks for looking.
