My first attempt at something that isn’t a small keepsake box or shadow box. The legs are Sapele and the rest of it was milled out of dimensional mahogany. It has a drawer and a slide out shelf for electronics. All mortise and tenon joints into the legs and tounge and groove for all of the panels. Finished with Feed & Wax and 5 coats of Cabot Poly. All comments, suggestions, and critiques are welcome and appreciated.

I will add more detailed photos after I manage to get it unloaded and take more pics.

Good and solid, strong night stand. Would like to see a photo of the back and another with the shelf slid out.

As the British would say, it’s ‘dreadfully pretty’. Still not sure what that means, but I think it’s a compliment. Wait, was it ‘desperately pretty’? Anyway I like the nightstand.
