When I first saw photos of Darrel Peart’s Freemont Nightstands I thought they were BEAUTIFUL! When I saw the Wood Whisperer Guild had these nightstand class available I decided to purchase it. Although the description of the class indicated it was an advanced project, I decided to tackle it.
I decided to make the nightstands out of cherry wood with the carcass made of cherry veneered plywood. The Greene and Greene style plugs and bars were made of ebony. I finished the tables with Arm-R-Seal satin.
The project was challenging at times, figuring out how to do certain tasks. Made numerous mistakes, but that is the learning process. All in all I was very pleased with the outcome and the journey to get there. After finishing I couldn’t see putting the nightstands in my bedroom. Instead they live where I can see them while awake!
Thanks to Darrel Peart for recording the class and Marc Spagnuolo for having the class available in the Wood Whisperer Guild.
And thank you for taking the time to look at my post.

Spectacular work! I don’t blame you for not wanting to put those in the bedroom :-)

im a huge fan of g&g furniture so this really makes me smile.having done a g&g wall table i know quite well what you went through making these.i used darrels books for inspiration and guidance which helped me a lot.i gotta say you killed it with these and i can understand why your gonna keep em in the living room.but hey just make another pair for the bedroom.and while your at maybe a bed and dresser too match-lol. beautiful work.

Very nice, Greene and Greene style draws your eyes to the details. You should be proud of your results.

Bravo!

I’ve been lusting over these for a while (along with all the other DP creations). Fine looking work, the drawer slides integrating with the drawer joints is such a nice detail!
