Nice piece Tyler. I was doing some ebonizing on a project for the neighbor. Any ebonizing recommendations from your end? Always looks nice when the grain pattern flows around the corner, like you did here.

Really nice, I wanted to make a pair of something similar as nightstands, well smaller… How did you attach it to the wall?

Hey Tom, by ‘wrap’ do you mean edge banding? The drawer fronts are solid and the end grain isn’t hidden. The only tip i can give you is sand or scrap the surface to perfection, the black will show it all.

Hi Tyskkvinna,

Behind the drawers, where they’re hidden.

I was just about to ask about your mounting option and now see the above posting :) I like to use pocket holes for surface mounting when feasable. Your method works just fine :)

Is the notch in the top for running an electrical cord?

I did something similar for DVD storage in teh living room and used heavy duty L brackets screwed into studs. That thing won’t budge . To camo the brackets, I painted then the wall color. You barely even notice once the DVD’s are in.

Awesome design.

Very nice and minimal, just my cup of tea.

Have your say...
