A night stand built for my daughter. Cherry top and drawer front, poplar otherwise.
This was one of my early projects and the nice result falsely inflated my hopes for having some innate woodworking skills.
A table like this is a great project for the newcomer. A simple slab top, a box frame for the drawer, a dove tail jig. Pocket hole screws? Never admit how easy the joinery is unless pressed.
Lovely black paint to cover up the various flaws. A light stain and a clear finish complete the look. You can build this whole table without measuring a thing.
