General Instructions

Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!

Step 1

Katie Nightstand Open Shelf

First build your box as shown here. I recommend using ¾” PHs and 1 ¼” PH screws and glue. The shelf can be made adjustable using shelf pins.

Step 2

Add bottom supports. This also gives you a little extra something to screw the legs into.

Step 3

Build face frame first with ¾” PHs and 1 ¼” PH screws. Attach to face of storage box with 1 ¼” finish nails.
While you have your nailer loaded, attach back plywood as well.

Step 4

For the mouldings, it is best to cut to fit. Cut the first mouldings, with outsides mitered. Nail on with 1 ¼” finish nails. Then cut the side mouldings to fit and nail on.

Step 5

Attach bun feet and you are done!

Finishing Instructions

Preparation Instructions: 
Fill all holes with wood filler and let dry. Apply additional coats of wood filler as needed. When wood filler is completely dry, sand the project in the direction of the wood grain with 120 grit sandpaper. Vacuum sanded project to remove sanding residue. Remove all sanding residue on work surfaces as well. Wipe project clean with damp cloth. It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.

Can you tell me if the shopping list includes the material for one or two night stands? I'm assuming its just one but want to make sure before I get started. I am planning to build two and want to make sure I have enough supplies.

Super excited about this plan! Thanks for posting!
