Walnut end table/nightstand to match the head board I made years ago. The sides mimic the headboard with chamfered planks. The top has a lot of sap grain contrast while the inside has adjustable shelving. The drawers are made with locking jointery with five panel doors and drawers. finished off with 5 coats of tung oil

That is really cool. Aesthetically I appreciate the plank theme and construction as well the contrasting colors. I am also a big fan of incorporating knots when possible and really accentuating the woods character. You certainly did that here. Job well done.

Thanks guys, If I had it to do different I would have done drawers behind the doors for easy access to the items below.

really envy you folks who can cut straight and route out a joint properly. I spent 30 minutes using the most precise measures i have and the other half of a half-lap yesterday, and STILL ended up with an eighth hanging over!! -pretty walnut!

Hey Christine, my way of looking at it is not to overthink it and have plenty of test cuts ready to make sure it is perfect. I take the same thickness stock that I am using to make my project and make tons of test cuts and once I have it perfectly set I batch route or cut all my pieces. When doing half laps, stack up your dado to it’s max (if your project requires it, otherwise stack it to the desired thickness) and start making test cuts raising the blade little by little till you have it perfect, then do your pieces for your project. Take your time and don’t rush it. Test cuts really save you a lot of headache. Good luck and thanks for looking!
