After I completed my last project (mission style bed), the wife said that our nightstand tables were out of place and did not match, and now she said we needed new ones that matched the bed I made. Well, not wanting to dissapoint the misses, I told her I would be happy to make new tables, but in order to do them justice I would need to buy a dovetail jig…she said, “Sure, whatever you need.” That was my cue to buy a new Porter Cable jig and get to work. The tables are all mortise and tenon constructed Red Oak with a Red Mahogony stain. She likes the tables, the only thing I would do different (now, that I have a little experience) is to change how I mounted the drawers. They are side mounted with a dado in the two drawer sides.
