I took some time off my regular projects to work on a prototype nightstand idea I’ve had planned for quite some time. A nightstand that has a secret compartment to hide that secret item, if you know what I mean!
This design is based on a Mission style but with a secret, a hidden compartment that drops down. To drop the secret drawer down you have to open the main drawer and push a button releasing the drop-down drawer.
I like to build my prototypes out of 2×4s and scrap plywood as their cheap and I’m not wasting quality wood – I always like to get clear 2xs when I’m at the lumber yard for just such prototype projects.
No finish on this yet, will be stained and the real versions to match my bedroom will be made in white Oak. These will also look good in Cherry.
