    A few progress pics on a bedroom suite

    Here are a few shots of a bedroom suite that I have going for my daughter and her hubby. They have just bought a house and needed furnishings so I am chipping in the best I can.

    The nightstands and chest on chest of drawers are made of solid maple and maple ply 1/4" and 3/4". The design is roughly based from memory on a bedroom suite that Woodsmith put out a few years back. I built that one then and have lost the plans so I'm just sorta wingin it.

    I've gotta have all this done before she and hubby come in to visit around the 20th of June. I had better get in gear.
    I once heard that cats and women will do darn well what they please and that men and dogs would do well to accept it and just go on.

    I struggle with tight miters, Jim, so that second photo is pretty impressive to me! Everything goes together well.

    Is the last photo a separate unit, or is it the base of the unit from the first photo?

    It's going to look sweet when you wipe on that first bit of finish.

    So, I guess you're not taking any breaks after you start your "retirement", eh?

    The last pic is a separate unit, one of two nightstands. I did wipe on some stain this afternoon and it looks great. Reddish brown walnut stain from Lockwoods. It's a water based dye stain, very rich color. I haven't gotten the drawer fronts finished yet so they are not present in the pic. I should get them on some time in the morning.

    Hi Jim,
    Those pieces look real fine and love all those drawers. Your own plan seems quite good to me, from your pretty feet up to the molded deck top. No chance getting you to make the drawer fronts and just clear coating them is there? The contrast has it's place,... are you thinking ..."somewhere else"?
    Good job , nice gifts.
