Mahogany veneered nightstands, book matched with docking drawer. The veneer is waterfalled, (up one side across the top and down the other) The pair is mirror matched. If you put them next to each other the grain on the top will opposite to but match.
The style is Czech cubist. The corners are mitered, but there is nothing square about them. The angle at the bottom is 92.4 deg. The top is 54.6 deg. To get the angles to the tablesaw, I made a full size drawing and then made plywood blocks with the correct angle. these were used to set the blade correctly.
Picture taken before disassembly for final sanding and finish. They will be dyed and stained black with a black glaze and a full finish.
The face on the pull out shelf is glued on permanently. the pull is attached by setting a ‘T’ nut in the back of it before I glued it on. (cut the head off the screw or use a piece of all thread to hold the pull on)
I am not really sure why the second picture is sideways. I rotated it and re-uploaded it 4 times. It made no difference. I have tried to explain to the computer that the drawers will fall out if it stays like this, but it it won’t listen. It says it knows best.
-- nice recovery, They should pay extra for that mistake, Eric E.
