How to build a modern style two drawer nightstand.
I worked with Ana White again to make this nightstand. She drew up the plans and I did the construction for my girl #1:
Inspired by the Monarch nightstand from Land of Nod:
It’s perfectly Mad Men in style, especially with those canted legs and curved front corner edges:
But even better that it has two drawers for concealed storage and one open shelf for easy access:
Fresh and sleek and fits perfectly just below the window:
Here’s how I made the nightstand:
1. Using plans from Ana White here cut wood and construct:
2. To make drawer fronts cut 1/2″ plywood to size as per plans.
Then rip 1/4″ scraps at 1 1/4″ wide to ‘frame out’ drawer front.
Glue and clamp in place:
3. Once dry and sanded, chaulk seam between 1/4″ and 1/2″ to make for smooth finish:
4. Secure drawer fronts to drawers:
5. Finish as desired.
