This is a nightstand I built for myself. I just had to try the plywood on edge, I think it looks pretty cool. I had a lot of fun making this, and it really tested my patience. But in the end i got a cool nightstand and its the best drawer I’ve made yet.

I’ve often heard that sometimes the best way to deal with a “flaw” in the wood is to actually do something to draw attention to it. Make it look “on purpose” so to speak. Well you have definitely made the plywood edge look “INTENTIONAL.” Interesting design and I have to say that it works. Not sure I would put it in my own house, but I do think that it works. Well done. Very inovative.

I’m a big fan of end-grain, and it’s sure here in quantity! I like it.
