Leopard Night Stand

KAPOW = Kevin’s Art Project of the Week

KAPOW week 23 went from one week to two! (A KAPOW rules violation!). Here is the KAPOW week 23 and 24 project:

A nightstand made out of Leopardwood and Red Elm. We needed a narrower nightstand, so I envisioned this pedestal style nightstand with dual table surfaces. It has a 5 degree (back) angle for the main beam.

Next step: add a small drawer under the lower table surface (I have an idea how to attach one).

Some additional thoughts: I did plan the top joint with some consideration for expansion/contraction, but if it does separate, the plan is to route out a channel where the wood meets and fill with a separate strip of wood. Also, the base could be a bit heavier. It is not going to fall over, but it could use more weight to anchor it (I was going to use thicker wood with larger feet at the base, but ran out of wood).

Remember, there is no definition of art…..
