This is version 2 of my Bedside Nightstand. Unlike version 1 which was the prototype for my secret compartment design, this is the real deal finished model. Solid Quarter-sawn White Oak thought-out with the exception of the Back, bottom and secret compartment components. V2 is a little wider than V1, something that building a prototype and putting it to use your able to learn that V1 wasn’t wide enough to fit all my usual bedside junk on.
Finish is described in my blog http://lumberjocks.com/CampD/blog/77330

Final test fit assembly.

Start of glue-up assembly.

Thanks for looking!

Very good idea with secret compartment. It’s OK to have it for valuables.

Beautiful piece and the wood! Interestingly, the oil stain first doesn’t visibly highlight the pores and brings out the flecks and grain. Maybe the pores get cleaned when wiping the BLO off?

Yes, when wiping off the BLO, it does remove some of the stain from the fleck, this step really highlights the contrast. I flood the piece with BLO and allow to sit before wiping, it should be wiped gently so as not to wipe to much of the stain away.

Nice piece and a nice little hiding place to hide your piece or your jewelry

Thanks LJ’s!
I’ve got a couple more pieces in this style in various stages.
Also working on a writing desk with a couple of hidden compartments, one with a new design.

That’s a beautiful piece of furniture. Gorgeous wood and great details. I’m sure you’re proud of that. Do you have plans for it that you’re willing to share?
