This is a nightstand I made for my girlfriend. She asked me to build her one, she designed and I build it. Its made of poplar and maple. Finished with three coats of danish oil and four coats of semi gloss poly and waxed.

Thanks for looking, Matt.

I like your night stands… looks good. I am busy with something similar, but still have to put in a few hours before it is done and i have to make 2 one for me and one for my wife. Oh and about the list. You’ve got it right… the difference between a girlfriend and a wife is the length of your to-do list :-)
