    Night Table- work in progress

    A week before Christmas, our #2 son (youngest who just left home a year ago) says he needs a night stand , tired of using a laundry basket!
    Day 1: Found a plan I can use from a magazine (wood). I made up two raised panels for the sides, this differs from the magazine plan. Dadoed for shelves, made up the base. Turned 4 feet from a left over 5" x 30" column blank, cut it up into 5 pcs @ 6"L.
    Day 2: Cut up some 3/4 maple ply I had. Glued up 5/4 for the top, did a test fit, need to reduce length of ply so a 1/4" back will fit. So far, all I have had to buy is a handle, and 1/4-20 T-nuts to fasten the legs. A few pics!

    Man Bryan, you're dragging your feet on this almost as bad as Allen Levine. C'mon, can you pick up the pace a little bit?

    Looking real nice so far. You sure get a lot of use out of the Vega duplicator, huh?

    I like it. I know how your son feels. My place has empty boxes used for many things.

    Dec 24.... got an hour in today , sized the top, rout the rd overs on top and base, using a 1/2 radius bit dropped 1/8th below R-table. Assemble main carcass, set pcs together for a pic. Back will get screwed on. That way it can be left off so I can spray easier. Same with top and base, then reassemble pcs after spraying.
