no previous part Part 1 of Nightstand for CPAP Machine series Part 2: Improved material usage »

I have a CPAP machine for OSA and my nightstand doesn’t have enough room for the machine and a clock. The CPAP has to be lower than the top of the mattress for safety reasons. I also got one of those memory foam mattress pads and now my nightstand is way too low. My current nightstand has two drawers which I like.

So what I want is:
- Nightstand as tall as the bed
- Shelf for CPAP machine
- Hole in side of stand for CPAP hose
- Two drawers
- Back behind drawers,but no back behind CPAP (may rethink this later since the machine sucks air in)
- Small width (at least as small as the current stand which is 20”)

Here’s what I drew up in sketchup.

Have you finished your CPAP nightstand?
I’m curious what finish you chose for it.
I’ve been contemplating making one for myself, but was concerned about off-gassing from the finish.
Don’t want the CPAP machine to suck in fumes from the finish.

I did finish it. Urethane coating. The machine moves so much air that I did smell the urethane for a day or two. Not enough to scare me.
