Bedside table drawer done

I finally finished up the drawer for my bedside table.  I’ll be working on the TV lift table but progress and blogging will be sparse.  I’m dealing with a medical issue (my knee) that’s going to make it difficult to do much woodworking for the next few months .. at least. 

Anyway, final shots of the Bedside Table:

Somethings just can’t wait ..

Don’t know if you remember this shot, but obviously, I need a bedside table. 

current night stand (1 of 1)

So here it is .. with out the drawer.  I’ll make the drawer some time this week and post a final glamour shot.  But I wasted no time putting it to use and I’m very happy to have it.  The nice curly cherry if used for the door is a hand picked board from Hardwood To Go (Shannon Rogers). 

Finish is shellac under Daly’s Pro Fin.

Installing the hinges

I did a step by step of the hinge installation for anyone whose interested .. and .. so I don’t forget how I did it.  I used card scrapers on all for sides to create the proper spacing.  The card scraper just happens to be the same thickness as the hinge washer.

More door progress and problem solved – BST

I used Tom’s suggestion in the previous post to hold the rail while using the No. 48 (video here) to make the groove.  This work holding method was very efficient and the grooves were done in a snap.  A little bit more fitting of the panel and the the door will be done.

Groovin with No. 48

I love using my No. 48 to make grooves for door panels.  When I’m making thin styles and rail (1 3/8″) I still don’t have a great way to hold the work.  If you have a magic trick, please share.  Any way, the door is starting to shape up.
