Night Stand

Two drawer Night Stand with tray. Made of pine (used cheaper wood because this was to be a practice project, but turned out better than expected). Used a walnut gel stain with a poly finish.

Excellent Ron. This is the beauty of working with wood. Sometimes a simple idea turns out to be a treasure. My daughter wants me to make one just like this with the exception that she would like a shelf where the bottom of the second drawer rests. She only needs one drawer so this would be easy to modify. I will definitely keep this in mind. Thanks for sharing.

The project looks really great my wife and kids like the two drawer night stand with tray. Do you have any plans by chance for this project my kids would like me to make them one.

Looks great Ron, you have done an excellent job and the finish looks really good it was worth the extra work you had to do to get there, Well done. Thanks for sharing your work with us.

Hardest part was the stain.  I watched the video of using Seal Coat shellac halved with denatured alcohol and then the gel coat.  Was not happy.  I sanded and started over with Miniwax polyshades.  That was worse.  Sanded again.  Then used Miniwax Pre-Stain followed by regular Miniwax walnut stain and then used Miniwax Walnut Gel Stain over the regular stain.  Finished with three coats of poly.  Since this was just to be a practice project, I kept the cost down by just using wooden drawer slides.  My wife picked out the drawer pulls and basket which really sets it off.  Not a practice project anymore.  We're gonna keep this.

Kreg Foreman

I have built many kitchens and finally decided to buy the Foreman, because my latest kitchen consisted of 28 cabinets and I was over my hand hurting from all the drilling, moving the clamp etc., it seemed like a smart choice.
