The table has turned legs, a small drawer and a solid board top that is pegged. We desperately needed another little table we could use as a night stand. Our bedroom has so many doors and windows with little solid wall space that we might have to rearrange the furniture to be able to fit a night stand and this table on either side of the bed. Oh well!
|the drawer is joined by a wide dovetail crafted by hand|
|notice how the bottom of the drawer is beveled on either side.|
|you can see and feel the hand planing work used to create the beveled |
edges of the underside of the drawer
|the top is constructed from one solid piece of wood; notice the pegs on each side. |
I love the patina of the top despite the scratch marks.
Here it is shown in our bedroom. I kind of like it in this spot even though it will be more functional as a bedside table. Do you have a favorite little table in your home? Or do you have any creative ideas for unconventional bedside tables? In my guest room I use a wooden filing cabinet as a night stand and I've stacked decorative boxes before as well to serve the same purpose. But now I'm happy to have a wonderful antique bedside table to call my own.
