I made this night stand for my granddaughter for Christmas. It is sized to fit her American Girl doll. It is made from oak, because I had a lot left over and will be painter white with a purple pull know. All corners have a 1/8 radius. The unit is 5 and ½ inches wide by 7 and ½ deep by 7 and ½ tall.

The drawer has a little secret to it. On the back will be a swing lever to release the drawer so it can be taken out. Behind that drawer will be a little hidden drawer to store personal things, jewelry, rings and whatever the doll wants.

The legs extend through the base for extra support and to make it more rigid. It was assembled with only glue, no screws or pin nails.

Thanks for looking.

Awesome job! Amazing tiny drawer. I wouldn’t mind a full size for my room.
