Timber: Radiata Pine
Finish: Feast Watson – Baltic Pine Stain + Satinproof + Find Buffing Oil
Glue: Aquahere PVA
These bedside tables were my first attempt at hand cut dovetails (which may explain why they’re a little rough.) Over 100 pins/tails in total – cut with a cheap tenon saw, coping saw and chisel.
These tables were my third or fourth build. This was so early in my wood working that I had no workbench, but held the wood by clamping it to a tool box. (I never got a photo of the process) They are still solid and are currently next to my bed.
Two problems with the design. 1. That top was design before I knew about ‘wood movement’ (though it has suffered very little). 2. A cardboard is useless in a bedside, drawer(s) are the way to go.
