Here are my arts and crafts nightstands in quartersawn red oak. They feature one small, over two large drawers with storage in mind. The lower assembly is built with through tenons and double walnut pegs. Drawers are dovetailed, with poplar and aromatic cedar used as secondary woods. Side panels are solid oak. Small corbels are let into grooves in the legs. Arched lower rails and hammered pulls complete the look.

Well, I’ve been wastching this build closely; and knew it’d really turn out super. And, they are really MAGNIFICANT. And I’m personally glad you decided on leaving the backsplashes off. Thanks for all the pictures over the duration of this fabrocation.
