These nightstands are part 1 of a bedroom suite project for one of my boys. He asked if I could do a cantilevered top combined with the square-ish design we had sketched out. These are cherry and 18”w x 25” h x 18” d.
There is more information on the build and the secret to support the top on my blog here:
These smaller pieces let me work out the joinery details for the larger pieces. I also purchased a Festool Domino to help with the joinery and the Leigh RTJ400 jig to make the dovetails for the drawers for the entire project. While there are lots of reviews on the domino out there, I will do one for the Leigh jig as this is a great way to get predictable results for this tedious joinery choice.
Off to make a dresser…
