Mission style nightstand. This one is all quarter sawn red oak. The panels, shelf, and drawer fronts were resawn & bookmatched from rough 8/4 stock. The inlay is canary wood. The drawers are solid red oak with brass pinned rabbets. Since there were just two small drawers(and a recently acquired verritas detail rabbet plane) i did all the joinery by hand. The drawer bottoms are solid 1/4 quartersawn red oak beveled to fit the 1/8 groove. The shelf floats in a shallow dado & dry loose M&T’s. The top was given 15-20 coats of brushed on polyurethane sanded to a mirror finish. The rest was given a few coats of hand rubbed poly rubbed out with steel wool & a topcoat of wax. PM if you’d like the sketchup doc.
