My 14 year old raided the scrap pile this afternoon and produced this nightstand. He found this idea while searching the internet from a PaulY. This is made mostly of white oak & red oak with a little maple and ash. A little talent, some scraps, a 16 oz bottle of glue, some screws (some help from Dad) and he has something he’s proud of. It’s fun spending time together in the shop.
It’s 26” tall and 14.5” x 14.5”…give or take. Not sure what it weighs but it’s heavy.

A good idea for a butcher block cutting stand, actually.

very cool use of the scraps not only a place to put a lamp on but good for cutting midnight snacks seeing the kids getting into a great hobby like wood working.

Way Cool! I hate to see a piece of wood go to waste, a little creativity can always put it to good use as he has done.
