  1. Journal Nightstands part 4 - drawers....last before finishing

    After fitting the drawer fronts, that gave me the template needed to cut the drawer parts. Dry fit the drawers. Glue them up. Fit them (an entire morning of plane, test, repeat) and start the finishing process, drawers and tops first. I can't start finishing the carcasses as I...
  2. Journal Nightstands Part 3

    I "think" this is the third part, but the new format makes it hard to tell. Anyway, I glued up the carcasses after staining the drawer web faces for the three that are stained. I put on some drawer runners (have to pad out the inner rail offset: I fitted the top. Since the top is the upper...
  3. Journal Nightstands

    I made the stock for the drawer webs. Lots of leftover Sapele. I cut the mortise in the side assembly. I dry fitted the drawer webs to make certain they would not crowd the back. I glued up the webs. They are joined with a loose tenon. Next up is staining the webs and final glue up of...
  4. Arts and Crafts Nightstands

    Here are my arts and crafts nightstands in quartersawn red oak. They feature one small, over two large drawers with storage in mind. The lower assembly is built with through tenons and double walnut pegs. Drawers are dovetailed, with poplar and aromatic cedar used as secondary woods. Side...
  5. Headboard & night stands

    Another project off the list, the headboard is made of Alder The center panel is several boards Laminated together, I used my tablesaw to create a rounded cove edge I elected to use stub tenon on the center panel and mortise & tenon on the main rails The finish is General finish Gel Stain...
  6. Arts and Crafts Style Nightstands

    My oldest son asked me to build him a pair of oak nightstands to match the headboard (Picture 6) that I had built for him a couple years ago. Instead of solid side panels, I used 3/4" square spindles to better match the Arts and Crafts style of the headboard. Finish was done with mixing two...
  7. King Bedroom Suit- Bed, Nightstands, Dresser

    This is my most recent major project-a bedroom suit for our new king-size mattress. I'm not sure what to call the style (maybe you can help), but it's simple and classic, and will certainly last a lot longer than our last discount furniture store set. All the pieces are made from solid poplar...
  8. Reclaimed Pallet Wood Headboard & Stands

    My wife said she would love to have a pallet wood headboard. I liked the idea so I began. I glued and tacked the pallet wood slats to a piece of 1/4" plywood with a 2×4 frame. I painted the 2×4's and plywood black before adding slats to help camouflage the gaps in the slats.
  9. Art Deco style bed.

    This was definitely one of the more challenging projects I've done. It was a commission. The client had seen an Art Deco bed (an original from the late 20's) on a web site and wanted something similar. I took a few elements from the original and worked them into my design- sort of a basic DNA...
  10. Top of line nightstands.

    This is my first post here. I built two night stands for a customer. The nightstands are built out of Alder, with poplar drawer boxes. All the drawer boxes have under mount soft close guides. The night stands were distressed to give them that rustic look. I Finished them by staining with a water...
  11. Nightstands For A Lady

    I dug these out of my early projects album, two custom made nightstands for a wonderfully eccentric artist couple. It was intimidating working for these folks in my early days. They were picky and focused and knew exactly what they wanted. The upper floor of their house had a central studio...
  12. Salvaged

    The nightstands are made from the salvaged top and pull-outs from an otherwise destroyed old teacher's desk. The legs are from old treadle sewing machines. Tops were stained and then painted with willow leaves and four phases of the moon. The headboard is out of two salvaged antique doors...
  13. Bedside Tables

    These are simple birch nightstands. Customer gave me a design reference. They wanted an upper storage shelf that was geared towards books, magazines, tablets, laptops, remotes, etc. Drawers are dovetailed. I was pretty happy with the end result. The handles really set them off. Thanks for...
  14. Headboard and Night Stands

    My name is Simon and I am quite new with Lumberjocks (just joined about 20 minutes ago). I am still trying to navigate thru this website and introduce myself. I guess I consider buying a table saw as the start of my hobby which was 6 years ago. The project that I just finished is an oak queen...
  15. L. & J.G. Stickley No. 110 Nightstand Reproductions

    Solid Mahogany finished with Danish Oil. Story I started these at least 2 years ago and finally finished today. Yeah! His and her nightstands based on the Shop Drawings for Craftsman Plans book drawings with a few changes. I added a back panel to the nightstands so that books would not fall...
  16. Bubinga Bed

    This bed was created for a long time customer that normally goes with mesquite wood. But she wanted a wood that really stood out for her bed. Bubinga ended up being that wood. We used highly figured bubinga veneer for the panels on both the bed and nightstands. Long rails of bubinga were used...
  17. Nightstands & Headboard

    Hey Now, Well another project is complete, just in time for the holidays. The wood on both nightstands and headboard is Alder. I applied some GF Mahogany gel stain & some Deft Lacquer. Enjoy
  18. Curly Maple/Bubinga/Burl Veneer nightstands

    Pretty basic design: frame and panel with some chunky beading around the panels. The frames are from some curly hard maple and the edging is from one big piece of bubinga that's been laying around for a year or so. The real feature is the beautiful maple burl veneer that I got for a great...
  19. Distressed Pine Nightstands

    A couple years ago we purchased a new boxspring/mattress set that was much taller than our old set. The result was our nightstands were far too short and we had to add stacks of books to get our lamps and alarm clocks to a proper height where we could reach them. So I built a pair of taller...
  20. Bed and Nightstands

    The bed was based on a plan my wife found on Shanty-2-Chic, but modified a bit. In particular, I added brackets that allow mine to be disassembled, instead of assembling the rails with screws. For the nightstands, I couldn't find any plans to suit what I was looking for, so I made up my own...
