I built these nightstands as the latest installment in our bedroom set. These are solid cherry, with dentil molding, bun feet. I also made the crown molding on my Woodmaster 718. I made several videos during the construction of these (molding creation, turning bun feet, face frames, and installing inset drawer fronts), and they are uploaded to my YouTube channel which is called “ToolMetrix”.

Thanks for looking.

Looks great and the Cherry will get even more beautiful with time.
I could see me stubbing my toe on one of those feet.

I like the dentil moulding. Nice drawer gaps.
