Default Bedside Table/Night Stand

I made this night stand for our guest room. I'm not a fan of painting my furniture pieces but SWMBO was adamant about matching the wall paper so I O'd. Frame and top is solid alder. Panels and lower shelf are BB plywood. M&T construction on the "frame. Dovetail drawers. Router used for mortises, dovetails, profile on the top and drawer guides. TS used for tenons. Sprayed on latex enamel paint with a clear top coat. I had to redo the paint on the top but think it came out pretty well. Still need to get a piece of glass for the top. And by the way, SWMBO is thrilled.

Half measures? Not a chance. If it's worth doing, it's worth overdoing!

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.
