And with a final coat of finish on the bottom of the drawer, the Red Oak nightstand is complete!
Well almost complete... I picked up a piece of 1/4" plywood to make the back, but that's nothing. I am happy with the results. And most importantly, I learned a lot from this project. Ok, I won't delay the unvailing any longer, take a look...
This will be a nice replacement for the crappy little metal filing cabinet that is currently sitting on my side of the bed. The really big question though... what to work on next?
Though my wife doesn't think we need one, I would like to build a hall table. I'm not sure why, I think it's just the simplicity of the piece that I like it... I also want to build a blanket chest for each of my girls. And at the speed I get things done, I should probably start on these now to get them done before they graduate high school! I'd also like to build a bed frame and new dresser for our room... so many choices, how does one decide?? Any suggestions?
