Project Information

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.

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!

Great job msg, very well executed for a fairly technical set of pieces.

How would you rate the WW project for instruction level, clarity, etc?

Did you buy the patterns?

These are on my long term to do list along with a dresser and bed frame. Check out Kevin Rodel's designs as well as William Ng if you are looking for more G&G and A&C pieces. Bob Lang has written a number of books on A&C and G&G that are full of shop drawings and plenty of history.

Very nice work. I've always liked this design and it looks great in Cherry. These G&G pieces take a ton of work but the end result makes it all worthwhile (I know, I'm working on a bedroom set right now). Anyway, these are beautiful. Congrats…
