I work as a carpenter at a camp in NY and we finished construction on a $2.75 million, 20 bedroom guest house this spring. We purchased furniture for the building, all with a weathered/rough-sawn “canal” timber theme. The bunk beds that we got for some rooms for kids had a rail for each side, but since we have them positioned against the wall, we did not install the extra rail. I used these extra rails to build these two night stands for two rooms that have a slightly different layout that prohibited us from finding tables from our furniture supplier that fit the space.

I kept the manufacturer’s rough-sawn surface for the table top, but since I had to mill the legs and other parts from the larger boards, I had to try to match the distressed look on the surfaces I cut. I used a right angle grinder with a grinding wheel and a wire wheel to achieve that look.

Nothing too special, but we needed something custom to fit a tight spot and match the existing furniture.
