To be honest, it was not a difficult project.  It is made from 'scrap' MDF and poplar from other projects.  The design inspiration was the bed (headboard and footboard) that we purchased a few years ago.  I too consider myself a newbie.  The folks from Kreg asked me if I would describe myself as a 'woodworker' and I had to tell them that I am just sombody who builds stuff.  I don't feel I have earned the title yet.  The best way to learn is to dive right in!

Very cool. Beautiful work.  Being a newbie myself,  what was the most challenging thing in the build ...?

My daughter requested a ‘secret’ compartment so I added a lock to the drawer and a false base with storage for her.  She was so excited! The top is cherry finished with poly and it just added a needed contrast to the white furniture in the room.  I will be building a matching desk and dresser in the coming months (as time allows)

Excellent attention to detail that makes this a unique piece. I especially like the contrast between the white body and stained top. I'm sure your daughter will appreciate all the time and effort that went into creating this beautiful nightstand.

Kevin for a first kreg project it looks like you have mastered the use of the jig.  This is very nice stand and would compete well in a contest.  Like your design and colors, they are very  complementary of each other.  The door and drawer is well made with your reveal in the fitting well executed. Im sure you daughter will be thrilled.  Keep up the excellent work.  Thanks for sharing your work.

rollaway pantry

My first Kreg project.  Our kitchen is small and has no pantry, so we needed someplace to store food.  It made sense to use the space between the refrigerator and wall.  It's a 7" space, so I used 1x6" pine lumber.  I used a Kreg 320 jig, not just…Continue

Kreg Jig Dust Collection Attachment

1st impression when you hold this attachment in your hand:  "not much to it", Kreg sure is makin' $$ here.

Then I installed it.. perfect fit, leaves just enough room to adjust the setting screw on my K4.

Then the real test, hook…

My K4 Master System

I picked up the K4MS from Home Depot about 3 months ago, I was looking for a small filing cabinet for under my desk and nothing I looked at would fit or they wanted big money for it, my wife said “why don’t you just build your own then you will…
