Finally got around to making version 1 of my nightstand in QSWO. Unlike the prototype this piece I’ve worked-out all the little finish details and now I think
I finally have gotten the look I was after. The drawer front is a nice piece of curly QSWO that I found at Rockler
while making a quick stop in for hardware and decided to take a look at the wood selection, just enough for the drawer front. The drawer sides are plain cut WO.
secret compartment just like all my other pieces and the finish is blogged here.

Thanks for looking!

The fronts were cut after I had stained and applied BLO.

Love the nightstand. I build my furniture with quartersawn red oak. It has the same figure as white oak. I think the quartersawn oak figure is awesome for mission style furniture. Great job and I hope to see more furniture like the nightstand.

Doug, the piece is excellent. The grain is outstanding and you really pulled out all the stops with the details. Thanks for sharing.

It is insane how much a like quarter sawn oak furniture and how much I don’t like the rest. This is outstanding.
