I built this nite (Night) stand (Table) for my youngest daughter. The build was really rewarding, instead of being consumed with the details of the actual table i found myself thinking of her the entire time.
I don’t know how many of you have children but they put your life in perspective rather quickly.
As i said i had her on my mind constantly during this build, but what was exciting was that this piece has a chance of becoming something really special for her.
I understand this is not a great way to approach a project that requires any degree of technical thought but when it was done i was happy with the outcome. There are a few aspects of this table that i wince at, but she’s 3 and by the time she notices …. well i hope it lasts that long.
The table is made from pine, I used 2 coats of minwax oil based stain and 5 coats of a wipe on poly. I sanded with 320, 220, and 0000 steel wool. (A procedure i credit to this very site) i know it’s not rocket science. It however gvve this piece a beautiful hard finish.
It’s not perfect but Thnaks for looking anyway
