Mini Mission Side Lamp Stand with Drawers

Project by Dusty posted 03-04-2007 05:15 AM 2796 views 10 times favorited 15 comments Add to Favorites Watch

This is a small version of a side lamp stand much like a night stand .

It is used as a free standing lamp stand next to my desk. I have one on each side . This enables me to keep more space on my desk top free.

I also use this lamp stand to hold my keys and personal items because they are located next to my desk in the entry way next to the coat tree.

It is made out of red oak.

The dimensions are 16 inches deep x 19 inches wide and is 29 inches tall.

The two drawers are 11×11x 3 inches deep and are on hardwood runners and constructed with dovetails.

Copper handles are used for the drawer pulls.

There are 3 mission slats on each side.

The top and sides are solid oak.

Its finished using my 12 step mission stain process to finish the project.

I saw some of the pieces in your home. It looks like you cornered the market on Mission.

Are most of them your own design or did you use a Stickley catalog to get beginnings?

Is this one modeled after another piece. I don’t recall seeing a double drawered side table before – brilliant! Would be great next to the couch, bed, etc…

Karson,

I don’t have a Stickley catalog. I wish i did. I have heard about it before but never have seen one. Maybe some day I will stumble across one.

I have come across various plans and pictures in books magazines and collected these for when I would build a piece later. I end up taking a little of this and a little of that it seems from all the info. I adopt it to my needs, tastes, and construction methods I prefer.

In other words I use some of the best ideas and designs I see from all of them and try end up with something that’s functional and pleasing to me.

David,

If I thought anyone was interested in the plans for some of the smaller pieces ( like the sofa table, coffee table, lamps etc, ) in the future after I finish the blog project I am working on now for “This Old Crack House….” I would be glad to publish these plans. After all if you remember I made a promise when I was first getting started that anyone who is interested in something that I did I would share it.

Ask and you shall recieve.

Dennis,

Yes i did make the lamp. I made this one from the ground up. Its my design. i adopted and made the jigs so its fairly easy to make for others, who want a smaller lamp that is functional.

Oh, please publish! online or in print – we’d appreciate having autographed first-editions on our bookshelves or coffeetables!

I have seen a few books on Stickley furniture and others on Amazon.com. I don’t think they are detailed plans, but more like the catalogs to show what was made by the various vendors.

Great work Dusty. Maybe some day we will be talking about the Dusty furniture line. Oh wait, that has the wrong notion to it…
