Default Made These Nightstands for My Daughter

So my daughter wanted some bed room furniture. I asked her what style she wanted. In the end she wanted simple appearance. See send me photos of the style she wanted. I visited the store from where she took the photos to get more acquainted. In the end I built her a set of night stands that are true to the look she wanted but built to last. I told her that they will outlive her and I. I will be making the matching dresser soon.

1.54 million husband points for those very nice tables. Of course that won't get you through anything but a minor scrape with the Mrsses. I like that you went to the trouble to put in long drawer slides.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Used Baltic Birch ply for the drawer boxes. Love that material. Looks wonderful when lightly oiled, heavily waxed or just clear coated. The finished edges of that ply are a nice design element and cool to look at.

Michael, great looking night stands. I gave up on plywood dovetails long ago but you seem to have them nailed. I'm guessing the BB Ply makes the difference and now that I have a project with a few decent scraps of BB Ply I'll go revisit. From your shop pics it looks like you use a Leigh dovetail jig?
