Woodsmith Craftsman Nightstand Standard Plan & Premium Shop Drawings

SKU
WOODSMITH-CRAFTSMAN-NIGHTSTAND-GROUP

There’s the solid-wood construction for the whole project (a plywood bottom for the drawer is the one exception). And the joinery you’ll employ here follows the same path as its larger predecessor. There’s stub tenon and groove joinery that brings together the sides and back of the case for the nightstand. This simple but stout joinery is quickly done at the table saw and makes frame and panel construction the most logical choice. As you see in the main photo, the wide stiles and wider rails provide the luxury of lightly gluing the hardwood panels in place. This allows for wood movement while not compromising the strength of the unit. The bottom and drawer divider use the same joinery along with some cleverly hidden screws that reinforce the case. You can’t see them here because they’re hidden under the faux tenons in the sides and the top. There’s nothing faux about the dovetails that are used for the drawer construction. Or the Craftsmanstyle pulls that operate it. The adjustable shelf under the drawer provides the option of storing current reading material, and maybe an extra blanket that would be handy to have close at hand. Convinced? I hope so, it’s time to head to the shop and start building.

You can purchase the Woodsmith Craftsman Nightstand standard plan or the supplemental premium shop drawings as a downloadable PDF or in a printed format that we ship to you. We highly recommend purchasing both the standard plan and the supplemental premium shop drawings for more in-depth instructions and greater detail.
