In all this remodeling, needed some new nightstands. These are my wife’s designs. The first are mirrored, the second is one of a pair (‘50s style).

Have much more on the plate will post when they are done.

Thanks for looking

Clean. What is the joinery for the rail sections across the front to the sides/stiles?

I used Kreg pocket screws. I use them on everything that isn’t going to be a period piece. Then I mortice and tenon the connections. I hand make the dovetails for all my drawers – because I like them more than the other drawer joints.

The drawers in the pictures above are not glued, just dry fit, to make sure everything fits.

So many fine details, exclusive dovetails on the sides, amazing paint job, the sides with profiles and yet they look elegant and calm.
Looks like a perfect team work, between the two of you.
Best thoughts,
