Solid mahogany and maple nightstands with a Greene and Greene style flair. Tapered legs, resawn panels, floating shelves below, and dovetailed drawers. Just haven’t recieved the drawer pulls yet. The taper on the legs (they look square in the pics) are about an inch overall but, they just didnt show up as well in the pics. 3 coats of an oil/varnish and a final coat of wax. I like to think i coined the phrase “floating top” back when i posted my Asian inspired coffee table, but i probably didnt lol.

Nice work Rick. Love how your dovetails came out; I am very envious. Mahogany is a great choice

Nice pair of nightstands. I particularly like the details on the breadboard ends.

This is highly impressive kind of work! That is some real execution.
