I just finished this set of nightstands for my bedroom. I used solid red oak with the exception of the backs and the inside shelf(I used oak plywood there). I started out with four planks 12 inches wide and 12 feet long. I ended up only using three of them so I will be forced to think up another project for the remaining one. For the doors I got a piece of quarter sawn red oak to use on the center panels. I used biscuit joinery to join the sides to the bottom and figure eight washers to secure the top. I used General Finishes Georgian Cherry gel stain to give things a bit of color. Topped that off with several layers of a polyurethane. I was lucky that the lumber was in great condition. It was S3S for about $2 per board foot planed down to 13/16ths. Very easy to work with. Thanks for looking and commenting.

Hey Richard, I just found these pics of your nightstands. They look great. Are they your design or from a plan? And also do you know what kind of green paint they use to seal the end of those boards. I recently built a sawmill and have cut several red oak boards from some logs and now they are cracking on the ends.

Thanks, Hugh
