After many months I’ve finally finished a set of night stands for my wife and I. These are inspired by Darrell Pearts Aurora nightstands. I did make a few changes though, I added a bottom drawer that can fit my bio-metric safe if I ever wanted to and used some store bought hardware instead of making pulls. The other change is the material. The carcase is cherry, my drawer fronts are birdseye maple and the accents are wenge. The joinery is all mortise and tenons on the carcase that I cut by hand. The dovetails are also all hand cut on the drawers. I used a golden mahogany wood dye with 3 coats of wax for the finish. overall I’m really happy with how these turned out.

Very nice work. I like the design and the choice of materials. Question: I notice that the top side pieces appear to be perpendicular to the top grain. Did you use a sliding joint for those pieces?

They’re a breadboard end. There’s a tongue and groove joint with a couple screws in oversized holes holding it together.
