Well another small project is checked off the list.
These nightstands are for our guest room, the wood is Alder wth
General Finish Gel stain. I tapered the legs using the jointer & a jig

Very nicely crafted in the Shaker style, good looking tables.

Nice tables I love the shaker style. We have a couple of antique ones I have found it harder than it looks to make a new one look rite. I took me a couple of tries to get it but ; by jove I believe you’ve done it!

Thanks for the complements,
I did not have any plans to follow, just a picture from a magazine
It was all trial & error…... Many errors :-)

Great work. Alder is such a nice wood to work with, isn’t it?

Nice tables. Did you use drawer slides, or kickers and runners?

The drawers are on a pair of runners to slide on.
