I have been wanting to make a nightstand for myself for awhile and finally found the time this summer. Like most of my projects, this one began a year ago with me cutting lumber on my grandfathers saw mill and dreaming about what i would make. I didn’t really have a plan when making this, but i knew I wanted the stand to be large, I was tired of running out of space. The top came out to be 26”x 34”, the two drawers are 10” tall x 16” wide x 18” long, and the total height came out to be 31” tall. I finished It with puritan pine stain, and then a coat of polyurethane.
