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.

I tapedit off with 3m’s new advanced edge block blue painters tape. It worked better than anticipated, virtually no bleed.

Also like the use of dowels for the drawer joints.

Absolutely beautiful.

Great design. Great build. Beautiful finish. Exceptional choice of woods.

I—literally—raise a glass to you :-)
