Rustic bedside table that I made from some 1” cypress and slash pine logs. Found a nice picture of a buck on google pictures, that looked really nice as a silouette shadow. Then I enlarged it a little, set a piece of paper on the screen and traced it out. Then I cut the image out and retraces it onto the pannels. The crossed arrows I drew freehand. Used a router to carve out everything that wasn’t a dear or an arrow. Its about 1/4 inch deep. Used some black mocca stain to make it pop out more. It has a pull out shelf that I will use set the laptop on, a small drawer under it and then under that is the door to the larger cabinet.

Nice bedside table. Cabela’s would list a table like that for a small fortune.

It looks like it belongs in the bedroom with the other matching pieces.

Well done! I live 200 feet from Molesworths old shop and he would be proud. I really like the carved doors.
