After building a mortise and tenon chest in 2021, I had all kinds of ideas for how to make a better, slimmer, more complex piece using similar techniques.
This nightstand was meant to push the limits of what I could do as a joiner, and it certainly succeeded at that. This piece contains no fasteners whatsoever. It is held together entirely with joinery and glue. Solid wood was used everywhere except for the drawer bottoms. Almost all of it was made from scrap wood, and just to make sure I couldn't hide any mistakes, I used a natural finish.
