For the 7 years I have been married to my lovely wife we have used an old 70's bedside table and some Rubbermaid boxes as our nightstands. It was time to give my wife a nightstand that she would love. With the help of the Kreg Jig, a new table saw and some trials and tribulations in staining, I have given her a special treat. Best part: She loves them!
LOVE the nightstands, but the story behind them is even better.

These look great. I think I can see a satiny sheen on them that is really pretty!
You did a great job on the night stands. What did you use for the legs? They look like 2x2s but where did you get them?
Funny enough the legs are ripped down to 2x2's but they started as 2x3's. The 2x3's were cheaper at my local big box joint. What was nice about ripping them down on the table saw was that I could get a nice square edge on everything unlike just throwing a off-the-shelf 2x2 on there with their inconsistent rounded edges.
