Roughing up

So I needed to make two night stands based on a simple request and needed a few for my own use, so I thought I would batch out some. I was not unhappy with the design that the client liked and could easily use them for my purposes.

Step one, the design:

Table Furniture Rectangle Line Parallel


Simple, clean lines. A bit narrow to fit in a very specific place.

Step two, the wood:

Table Wood Wood stain Floor Flooring


I picked up a load of Sapele. Here it has already been processed into rough dimensions.

Step three, milling:

Wood Flooring Rectangle Floor Hardwood


The joinery is simple mortise and tenon work with tapered legs. Not shown are the tops that are drying from glueup.

Step four, dry fit of the carcass:

Table Furniture Wood Flooring Floor


Two tall, two short. About a day's work, though I rarely work full days anymore. Ha. Next up is the single drawer web that will serve as the only front rail, sanding, staining, glue up then drawer making. Will be a while as I am hitting the road for a bit (OBX time of year for me!). I may get the drawer web made before I grab the fishing gear and head off.
