Default Twins! Oak Night-Stands

I finally finished these 2 Oak Night-Stands. The wood was given to me from My youngest DIL's uncle.
Beautiful 250+ year old Red Oak. No panel glue up, solid boards.
This is my first true furniture build. I have done end grain cutting boards, cabinets, shop fixtures, etc.
It was a fun build. It took a while due to my work schedule.

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Thank You for Rotating the pictures for me!

The bottom shelf is sitting on 4 1/4" brass rods, just like shelf pins. I bought a 1/4" brass rod @ my local hardware store. I cut them a little longer than regular shelf pins. Then I rounded the ends and polished them up. It is removable. I turned the table upside down and slowly tapped the shelf until it cleared the predrilled 1/4" holes. Then I tapped the pins in.
I was concerned that if I slid it in like a shelf that I could/would scratch the finish. It really worked out great!

Great job you did on those tables. They came out nice. I learned something new on the brass pins trick.
Good job.
