Pretty happy with my newest creation. The entire nightstand is built out of knotty pine except for the top and drawer face, which is juniper. Stained the pine a walnut color and the contrast looks great. Distressed the pine to make it look more rustic.

Very cool nightstand. And it looks like it’ll be around a couple hundred years to boot!

I like it. Very rustic looking. My wife is also into the “distressed” look. Good job.

There is a large market for distressed work that one should not ignore. Good job and keep up the good work.

The legs and frame are too bulky for my taste. But I like the contrast with the drawer front and top.
