Hi:

Today I finally completed a night table for my wife. Have been working on it off and on for three weeks.

Made with Red Oak top, drawer faces, sides and shelf and White Oak barrel staves. Drawer handles from Lee Valley Tools.

36” wide and 22” deep, standing 29” tall.

The table top reveals 1/4 sawn red oak boards, a full 1-1/2” thick.

The lower shelf features a barrel stave stop across the back edge. Inner drawers made from Baltic birch.

This turned out to be a rather heavy piece of furniture but nice and solid!

Thank for looking :-)

Bill

Bar stools to sit and drink wine, tables to set wine on.
Not sure why a square “night table” suddenly has legs made from a wine barrel attached to it unless you are bringing wine to bed with you every night?
