This is my latest project from school. A simple night table with a drawer and a door.
The front of drawer was made using a dovetail jig, and i gotta say they are ugly little 1/2” dovetails. Too small and too even, they just don`t look right, so i made a new drawer with hand cut dovetails, its just waiting to be stained and sprayed then brought home. i`ll upload pics of that when its done.
The door i`m happy about, frame and panel construction, the panel is re-sawn 8/4 oak for a book match and i got lucky with some striking grain in there.
I tried a little star pattern with some rosewood veneer one of my teachers gave me, intended to do the full nautical star but time constraints made it a more simplistic design.
The case, top and plinths are particle board and veneer, the door and drawer solids.
