Here are the nightstands (well, one of them at least) that go with the dresser that I recently posted. African mahogany plywood sides and bottoms with solid wood for the trim and legs. The top is pomelle isipo (or something like that, I can’t recall the exact species at the moment) framed with African mahogany. Joinery is a mixture of biscuits and mortise and tenon. Finish is one coat shellac and four or five coats satin Arm-R-Seal.
