This is one of a pair of nightstands that I just finished. The design and wood choice were an attempt to match the bed a bit stylistically. The case is made from 5/4 that I bookmatched. The grain on the sides and top wrap around but the bottom does not as I couldn’t get that much continuity out of the wood I had.
The drawer sides are solid maple that I resawed to 1/2” and the drawer bottom is just baltic ply. I’ll admit to having bought the drawer pulls since I think they looked nice and came in walnut.

Nice! That’s a lot of work. I really like the continuous wood grain. Great job. I’d like to see a pic of the matching bed.

Very nice looking nightstands—kind of have a Mid-Century Modern flair to them!

You can’t really see it on these pictures well but here’s a very slight (11 degree) inward bevel on the case around the drawer front. I’d say the up side to this is that my wife has proclaimed that there is to be no more bought furniture in the house. ;-)

Thank you. So no pore filling. My experiments with pore filling have been a chore.
