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.

So where was I .. oh yeah .. The Bedside table

And now back to the bedside table that I was working on.  After the initial dry fit, it seems like every thing still fits .. whew!  Things have been stickered, but its been since before Thanksgiving that I’ve been able to work on it.
