I made two nightstands to go with the bed. This was the first project which involved drawers. One of the drawers still needs adjustment as I’m not happy with how it slides. Next summer I may take on the chest of drawers.

Nice nightstand. You mentioned you are having some trouble with a drawer? What type of slides did you use?

I used the slides listed in the article. The sku (Rockler 41088) was replaced by a new one (which I can’t remember). On one nightstand needed to place a shim on the slide (on the drawer) since the opening must have been a little wide for the drawer. The drawer would then slide properly.

On the second nightstand the same fix was an improvement but not totally.
