BITS AND PIECES - nightstand cabinet details





I get a large amount of comments suggesting I must have a clear vision of each project in my head before I start. This is almost always NOT the case.





WOOD WORKING VISION
When I am in the middle of a building project there is
a lot of sitting around and staring.
That doesn't sound quite right does it?
I sit back and look at what I have chosen to work with.
I look at each line, surface, and element on it's own.
I suppose it is really shapes I see it my head.
How I want the shapes to be and figure out what I might have
 to create that look. I started this project knowing I wanted
the open space in the nightstands to have doors.
So off I go searching with a tape measure looking for
 something that might work.


PARTS
What I found was the sliding panels that use to be part of this
 bookshelf, but I used them sideways from their original
 install. Yes ... that's the same shelf I showed you yesterday.
Told you then it was a long story.


TRIM
Now that I had fun and interesting doors I had to trim
the boring flat drawer faces to have more character.
I have used this same trim on several different projects.
You can see another set of drawers I used it on here
and my bucket of it here.


HARDWARE
With the original decoration on the door it only made sense
to mimic the look on the drawer face with the same shape, so
 I added the oval pull.

I hope I can find a bit more time to talk about more
elements of the process and this cabinet soon.
