This night stand was made for friends and was a good learning piece.
Made from red oak I had left in my grandfathers shop,I left the lumber nice and chunky the top being 5/8 and the legs 2×2.
For the finish i did two coats of natural stain and then I tried buffed Minwax finishing paste for the first time.
