I made a pair of these walnut night stands and finnished them with many coats of hand rubbed Deftoil.
The sides and the door panels are 3/4” thick Walnut, I made raised panels and put the raised part inside to make them look flat on the outside. The Rosette’s were turned on the lathe then carved and set into the back board with a forester bit to make then look like it was carved into the back board.
The hardware is over 100 years old it came from England, I found them in a junk box of old hardware in a antique shop in Philadelpha.
I am now working on a King size headboard made from 11/4” Walnut to match the night stands, it will have a inset panel of booked Carpathean Elm Burl Veneer in the center with a larger matching Rosette on the top.
