My sister in law asked me to build a bedside table for my niece. I never made one before so I thought I would give it a try. My father in law gave me the wood for free so all I had to buy was the table hardware. It’s nothing special but I really enjoyed building it. I did the beading by hand and cut the slots for the top hardware by hand. I wish I did double tapers on the legs and next one I build I will. It’s all select pine and has 2 coats of wipe on polly. Thanks for looking

Thanks to all. This was also my first time with pocket holes/screws. They are very easy to do. I wanted to try a few more things with it but my sister in law just wanted something quick.
