Yes! It’s ANOTHER OSB project! I’ve been working on these for almost a year – 10 months roughly.
The only thing missing from the final pictures is the drawer pulls – wife just found some she likes today, but no photos yet. I’ll probably add those photos when they’re all set up in the bedroom.
To see the process and step by step narration, go to the BlueMelon photo site: http://www.bluemelon.com/bobkberg/bedsidetables
Making round-front furniture turned out to be a bigger challenge than I expected – and many months of spare time were used experimenting to get the techniques right – along with all the other stuff on my honey-do list. As you’ll see, I do lamination glue-up, sectional glue-ups, soaking and bending. The BlueMelon site also has descriptions for most of the photos for step-by-step fans.
I’m happy to say that my wife is thrilled with the results. The only major change in design from the intial cardboard mockup is that the lazy susan was changed from a “star-like” design to a series of squared cubbies. The two tables differ only in the direction of the cubbies – so that the person on each side doesn’t have to lean back to the wall to get a book.
As you can see from the photo looking down, all of the drawer bottoms are glued up panels of various scraps of plywood. I like to re-use as much material as possible, especially when it doesn’t affect the appearance of the final project.
