My first piece of furniture that I built!

Submitted by strotter13 on Mon, 12/30/2013 - 23:41

This was my first attempt at building furniture. I decided to make new nightstands for my wife and I. I used the bedside table plans, and they worked excellent. I used poplar hardwood for the material. I stained it using Minwax Special Walnut, and I used Minwax Satin Polyurethane. I am currently working on the second one, which will be my wife's (she said she wanted me to build mine first, so that if I messed it up, hers wouldn't be messed up, lol). Mine turned out good, I am very happy with it. Thanks for the plans! After the next nightstand is built, I would like to build a matching triple dresser...
