  • Night Stand with Locking Secret Hidden Drawer

    Mike,WOW! Great job on the night stand! I love the solid sides and top. I'm also a big fan of the cherry accents in the top. I'm truly jealous of the tools in your shop. I think it's time for me to buy a table saw. Although I might put it off a bit and get a dovetail jig first. One thing I wish I would have done differently on my night stands is to position the pocket holes for the stiles on the sides so they would be hidden by the drawer slides. I'm happy you were able to make sense of my instructable. You have a beautiful piece of furniture that you can be proud of! And that's way more than most of us can say about our first ever projects. Remember "the more you do, the more you can do!" JimJim
