Showcase cover image for Shaker Nightstand

Project Information

I built this as a Christmas gift for my mom. It turned out really well. The joinery is mostly mortise and loose tenon, some pocket screws and biscuits, as well. It was the first time I glued up a panel. The breadboard ends on the top were not intended, but instead added when I realized I didn't have enough wood for the top I had planned on. The finish is Watco danish oil. I had to build a tapering jig and a mortising jig to do the project. I think I'll take a picture of those and post them too. Sorry about the quality of the pictures. After we drove down to my mom's I realized we forgot the camera and had to use a cell phone.

Nice table, the breadboard ends are a nice touch. I also like the tapered legs.
